The Road to Sustainability

September 10, 2014
9:00 am - 3:30 pm
Holiday Inn Express & Suites, Conyers, GA

Program sustainability is often thought to exclusively mean raising money. But money is only part of the equation. Raising money depends on having a quality program and demonstrating results. And showing effective results, in turn, is based on strong management practices. As such, getting to sustainability requires a carefully constructed plan, a vision, and a broad base of support.

This workshop addresses several key facets of sustainability that in combination, will lay the groundwork for ensuring your program continues on a long-term basis. Through an array of interactive and hands-on experiences, participants will gain knowledge, skills, and resources in three fundamental areas of sustainability: building collaboration, advocating for support, and finding funding.

*All of these courses have been approved for 5.75 core continuing education clock hours by NASW-GA.*

Join Us for PCCG Prevention Courses in July!

GUIDE is excited to announce another full week of Prevention Training taking place July 21-25! This is a fantastic opportunity to take all four PCCG core courses in one week. Don’t miss out!

The Prevention Credentialing Consortium of Georgia (PCCG) is a 501(c)6 organization with committees covering credentialing, recertification, training, public relations, resource development and prevention ethics. PCCG works to advance the prevention field by promoting credentialing standards of excellence. To fulfill one of the requirements to become a credentialed Preventionist in the state of Georgia, applicants must attend all four core courses (Fundamentals of Prevention, Ethics in the Prevention Field, Cultural Competency for the Prevention Professional and Communication Skills for the Prevention Professional).

We’ve made this super easy for you! We’re offering all four in just one week! Attend one, or attend them all! To learn about additional requirements for credentialing, click here.

We regret that the following have been cancelled for next week due to low registrant numbers:

Fundamentals of Prevention (June 21 and 22), Ethics (June 23), Cultural Competency (June 25)
