CADCA’s National Leadership Forum is a four-day conference packed with multiple adult and youth-oriented opportunities to learn the latest strategies to fight substance abuse and hear from nationally-known experts and policymakers with a full day dedicated to Capitol Hill events. The Forum is held in the Washington, D.C., area every year, normally the first week of February. It brings together more than 2,700 participants representing community anti-drug coalitions, government leaders, youth, addiction treatment professionals, researchers, educators, law enforcement professionals, youth and faith-based leaders.
Approximately 125 youth and adults will be attending this effort to speak with state lawmakers about substance abuse prevention and other important issues related to the promotion of health and safety for Iowa’s youth.
We invite everyone to join us. For more information, please contact us.
Details for this great event for Hancock County youth are coming soon! For now, please save the date.
Held for 4 days during the summer, the Mid-Year Training Institute offers in-depth, interactive training sessions geared specifically for community coalition leaders and staff. The Mid-Year also includes two levels of training for the National Youth Leadership Initiative activities (Key Essentials and Advanced). From fundamentals of coalition building and strategic planning to evaluation and research, you will come away motivated and inspired. The MYTI is held in a different city each year in either late July or early August.
