Presented by Bolster Collaborative


The Summer Training Academy is a premiere pre-conference opportunity to improve your work with young people by learning from nationally recognized trainers. These sessions strengthen skills, expand knowledge, and improve practice through the in-depth exploration of content that is not possible in a conference setting.


A conference like the PYDI certainly inspires, informs, equips and transforms. In some cases however, a participant can be left wishing they could do a “deeper dive” into an element of particular interest; spending quality time with a national trainer in a small learning cohort. That is exactly why Bolster Collaborative partners with PYDI to bring a series of high quality training events to the coast of Maine through the Summer Training Academy!

You’ll learn from experts in the field in an interactive, skill-based learning environment while engaging with colleagues from across the country. The events offered this year include content unique to Bolster Collaborative, as well as events offered in partnership with highly regarded national organizations. You are sure to find something of interest in the descriptions that follow!
