that I’ve witnessed are children not knowing where to go or which station to report to when they are released from school. As well as counselors not acting appropriate to children and are unable to control their group as a whole. It’s important that there is a consistent schedule just how the school operates for them and that counselors are fully trained and prepared when coming to work. Hoping to See a Positive Change What I hope to see is from a new efficient schedule is that counselors will be more organized on where and when to go to a specific location. It will avoid too much, or too little time that is spent at a station and a cluster of children in one area. This will reduce chaos, counselors not being out of ratio, easy transitions, and children not becoming bored so quickly. As far as conducting training for the counselors those will take place on weekends (typically on Saturday mornings) since weekdays are occupied with work and school. The topics of discussions are Group Control, Professionalism, Abuse Prevention, Child Behavioral Health, and Resiliency in Youth. The first 4 sessions are 50 minutes and the last session (Child Behavioral Health) will be 2 hours and 30 minutes. I contacted the Executive Director at the Downtown YMCA and was able to get an available date to book the Conference room for Y University in two weeks December 15, 2018, from 9:00 until 2:30. As a result, counselors who attend these sessions should receive a clear and more understanding outlook on how to approach certain situations that involve working with children.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
