CYFAR Professional Development Event

Each year the CYFAR PDTA Center hosts a Professional Development Event. This event brings CYFAR SCP grantees together to learn about the latest research, evaluation strategies, and program ideas and gives grantees an opportunity to share best practices and lessons learned.

Join us at CYFAR 2021! This year’s event will offer a multi-disciplinary blend of sessions, speakers, and presentations focused on maximizing the success of our CYFAR programs. As a participant, you will have the opportunity to learn from a diverse range of experts who have direct experience and proven success in serving the needs of children, youth, and families at risk. In addition, there will be opportunities for networking and learning from other CYFAR programs, meeting with CYFAR coaches, and speaking with USDA-NIFA leadership.

As a partner of USDA NIFA, we encourage all CYFAR-funded project staff to engage in this opportunity to enhance your professional skills, as well as the overall capacity of your CYFAR project. Project staff across diverse roles, experiences, and professional backgrounds will find this event useful and relevant in their continued efforts to make a positive impact in the lives of children, youth, and families at-risk.

It is our goal that after learning with experts and growing professionally, you will come away with enhanced knowledge and innovative ideas to create change in your communities.
