Professional Development

Our Anchorage Youth Development Coalition program is committed to building a stronger and more resilient youth community in Anchorage. AYDC’s expert instructors provide research-based, relevant learning opportunities, including professional development for staff at all levels of organizations. We empower our partners to apply best practices in the youth development field, leading to better outcomes for youth.
