About the Training
Whether you have funding to do prevention or promotion activities based in education, culture, social services, youth development, health and wellness or more, this dynamic three-day training is for you! Participants will be inspired as they are shown how one tribal community took advantage of grant funding, collaboration, community engagement, cultural resources, vision and passion and developed programming to inspire their nation.
This training will share from one community’s experience of the lessons learned, what worked and didn’t and assist participants who manage or oversee programs to maximize their funding to best meet the needs of community members. Participants will receive tools and develop a road map to take back home and implement that is filled with new ideas that will excite and motivate staff and community.
