The Workshops at Good Shepherd Services


Who We Are:

The Workshops at Good Shepherd Services has a rich history in providing learning and development opportunities for professionals in NYC and the surrounding areas.

40 years ago we took the lead in to develop this program as the need for professional development grew. We acknowledge that our fields are forever changing and evolving to meet the complex and emerging needs of our city and we are committed to be responsive to this need by providing workshops that promote innovative ideas, share promising practices, and promote evidence informed models to help achieve our mission of supporting youth and families and having NYC become a better place to live and work. We focus on fostering bold leadership, skill development, social change, and advocacy to make a difference in the lives of children, youth, families and communities. The Workshops is designed to be engaging, interactive, and is organized to build skill and bring compassion into our work.
