Jumpstarting Your Coalition

Jumpstarting Your Coalition

June 20, 2024


Webinar Description

During this webinar, we will focus on jumpstarting a prevention coalition for long-term success. During the session we will go on a journey to developing a ‘culture of participation’, including techniques for identifying appropriate members for your local coalition, building relationships, and maintaining coalition engagement. Participants will have the opportunity to learn information as well as apply that knowledge to their local work. Established coalitions will also be able to identify opportunities to strengthen and continue their functioning.


Webinar Objectives

In this webinar, participants will:

  • Share the big idea of community-driven prevention (as opposed to coordinator-driven prevention)
  • Identify key readiness elements for community-based prevention
  • Identify a variety of actions to recruit and engage coalition members
  • Identify options for maintaining a culture of participation in their coalition and learn techniques to maintain coalition member engagement
