Educational videos for youth development professionals
We are first-time EOT subscribers and I have to say: I don’t know why we waited! The videos are applicable, professional, and hold your attention. What a wonderful resource for our staff (and for me!). I especially liked the Awesome Archery series. It covers lots more than a standard course and, like all of the EOT videos, is tailored to summer youth programs. Thank you, Chris and the entire EOT Team!
I highly recommend EOT’s video series on bullying and relational aggression! My staff took to heart the situations in Dr. Joel Haber’s Preventing Gossip and Relational Aggression and Scott Arizala’s We Squashed It: Relational Aggression. Using the techniques in those videos, my staff were able to spot and intervene in so many nearly-invisible situations last summer, before they became destructive for our campers. Thanks to EOT, our ability to proactively solve bullying and relational aggression gave us immense credibility in our parents’ eyes and made my camp a safer and more positive place.
Expert Online Training delivers some of the best industry professionals into our dining hall each year during staff training. Even without meeting the EOT team in person, our staff members learn vital skills that help them become thoughtful and intentional guides for our campers. As they recall what they learned from the videos throughout the summer, our counselors feel as if they know and trust the people they met on the screen. Our staff training just wouldn’t be the same without EOT as together we help each staff members become their ‘best me at GRP!'
Dear Dr. Thurber: I have spent the past nine summers at Camp Friendship; the last five as a counselor. Before our on-site training, everyone on the staff watches a different collection of Expert Online Training videos. We all agree they are an amazing resource! Thank you so much for being a great help to camp counselors and students alike! You and the EOT faculty have been a tremendous help to me, both as a counselor and as a student, especially as I prepare for my upcoming coursework in youth development. Thanks to EOT, I got an A+ on my speech for my Public Speaking class, called, “All Children Should Experience Camp.
Thank you for our ninth great season using ExpertOnlineTraining.com. We love EOT because it prepares our staff prior to their arrival for the challenges of working with young people. They come to camp confident and prepared after viewing skillful solutions to all kinds of counselor-based and camper-based problems. We continue to make the training modules available during the summer so our staff can get instant help with any leadership issue.
Just watched your new modules and we really like them! We’re excited to sharethem with our staff this spring and we’re fully confident that our new and returning staff will be that much better equipped when they get to camp, thanks to all the training you provide on EOT. It’s wonderful to think about the ripple effect of your training on our staff and then on all the children they work and play with!
