Webinar: Is Extension the missing piece to your prevention puzzle? Maximizing the impact of community-based prevention through Extension partnerships
Emerging Topics in Prevention Science Monthly Media Series presented by the Prevention Technology Transfer Center Network.
A central problem in prevention programming is how to implement programs with high quality, sustain them over time, and demonstrate improved outcomes for children and youth. One innovative attempt to solve this issue is to develop and support community-based coalitions that plan and implement these programs. During this webinar, presenters will discuss how to leverage county and regional Extension educators as a key partner on community-based teams. Presenters will offer a real-world example of how this has been done effectively across Pennsylvania. In addition, presenters will share lessons learned and promising practices related to high engagement and sustainability of local prevention coalitions and activities.
