Lunch & Learn Workshop Series: How to Write Successful Grants in Prevention

Are you a beginning grant writer or someone who is more experienced? Settle in with your lunch or snack and join the Southeast PTTC as we share a 3-part workshop that will provide beginners with essential information to develop skills and build capacity required for writing strong proposals. For those with a bit more grant writing experience, this workshop will sharpen your skills and keep you up to date on grant writing trends.

From selecting grant opportunities, to writing SMART objectives to thinking about the budget, each workshop includes instructor-led discussions and opportunities for skill-building and participant engagement. Just prior to the final session on June 10, participants will be invited to submit real-life work products that may be selected as case studies for discussion and presenter feedback. All identifying information would be removed from any submission selected by the presenters.

Workshop #1: Planning for Successful Grant Writing

Monday, May 20, 2024, at 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. ET

This workshop will focus on planning for successful grant writing, with an emphasis on factors outside the proposal narrative that are critical to success.

Workshop #2: Writing a Winning Proposal Narrative

Monday, June 3, 2024, at 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. ET

Session two focuses on the key parts of a strong grant proposal narrative in the field of prevention.

Workshop #3: Analyzing and Learning From Real-World Examples

Monday, June 10, 2024, at 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET

The third and final workshop will provide attendees an opportunity to practice and workshop the skills they have learned in workshops 1and 2. Attendees will analyze real-life grant materials that offer ‘teachable’ moments to identify areas of strength as well as areas for improvement. Prior to this final session, we will solicit real-life work products from registrants for discussion and feedback from the presenters during the workshop.

Youth Engagement Workshop Series

Is your organization ready to engage young people in your prevention work? Could the framework of social justice youth development add to your planned or existing work with and for youth? This 2-part series builds on highly attended and well-received previous webinars hosted by the SE PTTC and responds to requests for additional practice-oriented and interactive content.

Youth Engagement Workshop 1:

Assessing Organizational Capacity and Readiness to Successfully Engage with Youth in your Substance Use Prevention Work

Supplemental Resources:

Presentation slides

Group Activity Worksheet

The first workshop in this series will introduce participants to characteristics of organizations that serve as a strong foundation for youth engagement. Participants will then examine their own organizational capacity and readiness for youth engagement. After this, participants will be invited to discuss with others' ideas for advancing characteristics to include and strengthen youth voice within their own settings. The workshop will close with an introduction to social justice youth development theory as a model for how to deepen practice with and for young people.

Youth Engagement Workshop 2:

A Social Justice Approach to Working With and For Young People In Substance Use Prevention

Supplemental Resources:

Presentation slides

Group Activity Worksheet

In the second workshop, we invite participants to learn more about the social justice youth development framework and we will focus on how to identify and address unequal distributions of power in youth-adult relationships. The workshop will close with reflection and discussion, tailored to participants’ own level of youth engagement identified through a pre-survey, about how to engage in practices that enhance authentic collaboration between youth and adults and to apply concepts to their own contexts to deepen commitment to youth voice.
