Adults Make a Difference
intensive training of educators and other adults has always been a
cornerstone of Lions - Quest's outstanding success. Today, Quest Life
Skills Australia has a network of professional trainers who conduct more
than 50 workshops and seminars each year in Australia and PNG.
Research, experience and common sense suggest that in order to teach
young people, an adult should not only be knowledgeable about the
subject matter, but also be able to engage students in the learning
process. Too often, the content is emphasized, while the process of
teaching, encouraging, and motivating young people is neglected.
Preparing for Program Implementation
- Quest commitment to high quality training in both the process and
content of its programs is based on the premise that programs for young
people are most successful when comprehensive program-specific training
is provided. This training is required for all adults who wish to use
the Lions - Quest program materials.
