Youth Program Management and Evaluation Graduate Certificate

About the Youth Program Management and Evaluation Graduate Certificate Program

The 13-hour Graduate Certificate in Youth Program Management and Evaluation is designed to prepare professionals who are either working directly with adolescents and young adults or are involved in education and research related to youth. Few graduate programs exist that focus solely on the second decade of life. The certificate is designed to assist youth professionals to develop and apply resources for successful implementation and management of youth-serving organizations. The program addresses the need for advanced education based on research and policy for optimal youth outcomes through a strengths-based curriculum. This certificate is available only through enrollment in Great Plains IDEA.
