Community Collaboration & Common Goals, 4 hours
This course is designed to engage probation staff and community-based organizations (CBOs) to discover and affirm their common goals. CBOs and probation professionals come together in one day of training to explore their common passion for serving probationers. Participants learn what practices and skills probation staff is using to support probationers’ success completing their probation grants, and CBOs share with probation staff key components of their respective programs. All participants enjoy team building and a communication skills refresher. Additionally, all participants reflect on the ways in which their respective jobs are alike. Personal mission statements are compared. This course is a great kick off to future collaborative training and underscores the collaborative spirit behind helping and supporting probationers.
