About the Prevention Leadership Academy

The goal of the Northwest PTTC Prevention Leadership Academy is to engage leaders in the prevention workforce to identify and build upon their strengths in creative problem-solving, strategic planning and charismatic communication. Our aim is to do so through a hands-on experiential learning process in a face-to-face format.  Based on results from the Northwest’s 2018-2019, Prevention Workforce Needs Assessment and Advisory Council feedback, the Prevention Leadership Academy will focus on building collaborative structures to enhance leadership skills and that flatten hierarchy. Specific goals for the academy include:

  • Use of self-assessment tools so leaders can identify their strengths and areas of practice they would like to improve;
  • Participation in a set of Liberating Structures activities that can be used to engage others in their organizations and communities; and
  • Development of a leadership capacity plan to implement following the academy.

NWPTTC staff is collaborating with facilitators of Liberating Structures to present the academy. Liberating Structures is a set of practical methods and tools designed to foster active participation and create innovation among team members, collaborators, and communities. Their use facilitates trust-building and shared commitment to group values and outcomes.


Participant Registration

Due to budget and space limitations registration for the Prevention Leadership Academy, is limited to 80 participants. The Northwest is allocating 15 spaces per each state in HHS Region 10: Alaska, Idaho, Oregon or Washington, for this event. Participant registration for the Prevention Leadership Academy will open on March 9, 2020 and will close on April 7, 2020.
