Indigenous Resiliency: Indigenous Ways of Knowing for Thriving Prevention Programs Workshop Series Part 1
January 31, 2022

In this four-part monthly workshop series, we will explore how to build resilience into everyday thinking and actions so that important activities will thrive even after the funding has diminished. We approach resiliency from a broad perspective that recognizes the importance of determining what actions are important to maintain to help the communities thrive and identifying strategic actions. Our framework includes four essential pillars: Internal Support, Resource Development, Partnership Development, and Marketing and Outreach. A strong, evidence-based program is the foundation for these pillars.

 

WORKSHOP 1: BUILDING YOUR CASE FOR SUPPORT.

Effective plans and actions are built upon the ability to define, discuss, and present the case for why the work is important and should be supported. Participants will:

* Articulate and assess their daily actions to identify the scope and purpose of the work and how that relates to the community.

* Identify the need for appropriate data, i.e. tribal need, metrics important to community, impact of activities and actions.

* Develop and practice an “elevator speech” describing their work and project.
