Professional Development Services

L&G recognizes the critical role that New York City professionals in the education and human services fields play in providing youth a safe and nurturing learning environment both in schools and communities. L&G’s professional development workshops, led by our experienced team of doctoral trained facilitators, are designed to enhance knowledge and understanding of topics and methodologies that prepare audiences for the implementation of new programs or initiatives that both support the continuous improvement and advancement of this work.

Our team provides skills-based professional development workshops that challenge the traditional, didactic model by creating a space for participants to share ideas and collaborate in their learning, often in job-embedded contexts. Participants learn by doing! As a result, participants become more well-rounded and skilled in certain areas, better contributors to their organization or school’s mission and goals, and better prepared to advance their careers.

Our workshops are up to 3 hours in duration and are customizable to meet your staff’s needs.
