Training and Technical Assistance Committee
This committee will assist in accessing the training, technical assistance, and workforce development needs of the ACCESS Initiative (youth, families, community providers, and stakeholders), developing a strategic plan to address these needs, implementing and evaluating our cross-system community wide training. The committee will work closely with Evaluation, Family Advisory Board, Youth Advisory Board, Sustainability, Social Marketing and Cultural Competency committees. After the plan is developed and implementation strategies have been identified and executed, members of this committee will work on outreach to the community, identifying trainers, serve as trainers, mentors, and coaches.
The Training and Technical Assistance committee will be comprised of at least 1 representative from each standing committee and task force and 2 members both the Family Advisory Board and Youth Advisory Board.
Trauma Informed Learning Community
The Trauma Informed Learning Community will meet once or twice per month for the next 6 months and will focus on learning more about trauma, its impact, and we will recommend ‘best practices’ that we’d like to see applied in our community to address this issue.
This is a space to discuss and:
- Learn more about trauma (its various forms and its potential impacts)
- Learn more about the ‘research’, the developments, and the resources (local, statewide, regionally, nationally, and internationally) to available to help us understanding and develop strategies to address trauma
- Receive specialized training about trauma and trauma informed values, practices, policies, and principles….
