Quality professional development programs target many specific outcomes, including increased staff knowledge about youth development, use of effective strategies for activity programming, and implementation of methods for promoting positive relationships with youth.

ION believes that quality professional development focuses on the long-term sustainability of the out-of-school time workforce by increasing providers’ marketable skills to increase public support for the youth development field.
