CER Adult Advisor Training

Online Training

CER Staff are collaborating with staff in other UUA Regions and the UUA Youth and Young Adult Office to offer online advisor training. These trainings are based around the UUA Competencies for Ministry To/With Youth. Resources for congregations, including recorded webinars, are found on competency webpages.

In Person Training

The Fundamentals Program provides a way to train adults and youth in leadership together. This can be offered as a comprehensive full weekend program or as a component supported by the online resources above.

Hybrid Models

Reach out to your Primary Contact or Regional Staff to discuss ways to use these resources to offer training to your advisors as a congregation or cluster. We can support you in offering the webinars as a content delivery supported by facilitated conversations.
