National Coalition Academy for Virginia

“It is the aim of CCoVA to help Virginia counties and municipalities develop strong and effective coalitions. The Academy is an intensive course designed to get coalitions “off to the right start.” It is the most cost effective approach the Institute has found of helping coalitions achieve results and document contributions to reach population change in rates of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. Coalition teams of at least two people will receive three weeks of in-person instruction spread out across a twelve month period. Distance learning (Web-based Reinforcement Trainings) will be provided between onsite sessions. All aspects of coalition work will be thoroughly instructed including community assessment, problem analysis, logic modeling, designing and implementing interventions, strategic and action planning, evaluation, advocacy and policy advocacy, and sustainability.

Registration Begins March 31st!!
Training will be held at: Roslyn Center, Richmond, VA

First week: June 18-22, 2012

Preventing Youth Suicide

Youth suicide is a devastating epidemic that destroys young lives, shatters families, and leaves a wake of sadness and confusion for those left behind. Unfortunately, the heartbreak caused by teen suicide gives no sign of letting up. Youth suicide rates have almost tripled. Suicide is the third leading cause of death for young people ages, 15 to 24, and the fourth leading cause of death for youngsters between the ages of 10 and 14. By educating others and ourselves, we can make a difference in preventing youth suicide.
