How to Lead A Host Home Training


Host Homes - How to Lead a Host Home Training 

This special edition of Ask A Rockstar is designed for Host Home Coordinators and anyone involved in (or preparing for) the training of hosts. Ryan Berg and Rocki Simões, both of Avenues for Homeless Youth, will be answering some very important questions about host homes and host home training.

If you are unfamiliar with Avenues for Homeless Youth, their mission states that they provide, "...emergency shelter, short-term housing and support services for homeless youth in a safe and nurturing environment. Through such service, Avenue seeks to help youth achieve their personal goals and make a positive transition into young adulthood."

  • How do you build relationships with community partners and incorporate community partners as trainers?
