Program Description

The online Youth Program Management and Evaluation Graduate Certificate prepares individuals to become leaders in youth programs and activities.  Management and evaluation of youth programs is an emerging professional field. It has a positive orientation, meaning its focus is on activities that promote the positive development of youth.  It is an applied field, with professionals who put developmental research and theory into practice in structuring and implementing programs and services for adolescents.

A graduate certificate in youth program management and evaluation prepares students for careers in organizations such as 4-H, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, non-profits, faith based groups, community recreation, juvenile justice facilities, middle and high school programs, extension services, and military youth programs.

The online Youth Program Management and Evaluation Graduate Certificate is a collaborative, inter-institutional program offered by Great Plains Interactive Distance Education Alliance (GPIDEA), a web-based distance education program. The program requires 13 credits.

If you are interested in a complementary master's program, consider our online M.S. in Human Development and Family Science: Youth Development option.
