CMCA Day 3 & 4 Training Next Fri-Sat 5/30 and 5/31/14

Hi folks!  You are cordially invited to attend our upcoming CMCA Day 3 and Day 4 training at the South San Francisco Municipal Building on Friday May 30th, and Saturday May 31st!  The CMCA training will provide some insight into some of the problems around alcohol that the South San Francisco faces, and will be an opportunity for members of our community to engage with NCPP in helping to reduce the harm and impact from youth access and use of alcohol.

We will also be sharing some preliminary data from concurrent CMCA one-on-one interviews, where we have been in the process of interviewing 100 members of the SSF community to share their thoughts and perspectives on underage drinking.  Learn about current trends in our community, and explore some solutions with NCPP.

The trainings will be from 9am to 4pm at the South San Francisco Municipal Building, at 33 Arroyo Drive, SSF 94080.  We will provide breakfast and lunch for all participants.

Please RSVP with Athila Lambino at: alambino@aars.org  or by phone at 650-243-4864

After over a year of planning and coordination, NCPP was proud to host our Communities Mobilizing for Change on Alcohol (CMCA) Day 1-2 training for our Drug-Free Communities coalition in South San Francisco.  Facilitated by Brenda Armstrong of Santa Cruz County Friday Night Live (FNL) and Community United to Reduce Bingeing (CURB), the CMCA training provided a framework to address issues in the community around alcohol by utilizing principles of community organizing and the public health model.  Over 20 participants from various organizations attended the two day training, held at the South San Francisco Municipal building, as provided in support by our coalition partners from South San Francisco Park & Rec.  Trainees spanned the gamut from South San Francisco residents, college students, prevention professionals, San Mateo County staff from Alcohol/Other Drug/Tobacco/Nutrition departments, and even representatives of the individual organizations of Asian Youth Prevention Services (AYPS) in San Francisco.

As a team, our “homework” after receiving this first round of training is to interview over 100+ members of the South San Francisco community on their views.  We will be developing our list of leads & contacts, finalizing our interview template, and coordinating with our training participants on this “one-on-one” process.  Stay tuned in the coming months for the initial findings of this research.

The next round of CMCA trainings (Day 3-4) is planned for March 2014.  Won’t you join us and be part of the movement to make South San Francisco a safer and healthier place?
