The University of Oklahoma National Resource Center for Youth Services considers the health and safety of our participants, community, and staff are of the utmost importance. With the everchanging conditions with COVID-19 it is difficult to schedule in-person training very far in advance. We will continue to utilize virtual training as a primary delivery method with limited in-person training when it can be offered safely. Please check our website regularly or join our mailing list for updates on our event schedules.
