KSA Assessments & Online Study Guide


Prior to any training, it is helpful to assess one's own professional competencies or for an organization to assess the competencies of its staff to identify which competencies need development or improvement. In addition, organizations and systems must be sure they have the structure in place to effectively support and integrate professional development into their daily operations.

NCWD/Youth provides two free assessment tools:

Self Study

In addition to the YSP/KSA Modules Training, NCWD/Youth has developed the KSA Online Study Guide with self study learning activities and a wealth of resources for developing youth service professionals' competencies. 

Go to "Competency Area 4: Relationship to Family & Community" within the KSA Online Study Guide to find learning activites and resources for developing the same competencies that are covered in the Module 4 training.
