Prevention Peer Network

Nurturing a Vibrant and Diverse Prevention Peer Network!


Prevention Peer Network Web Conferences are an interactive opportunity for knowledge sharing and network building among prevention advocates and educators across California. Web conferences use Power Point slides (viewed on your computer using an internet connection), text chats, and a teleconference line to offer participants multiple ways to share and learn together. Prevention staff share expertise and gain support from peers throughout the state. Come prepared to learn, share, and join the discussion.

"THANK YOU for the web conference. It was fabulous - one of the best we've attended.
Very practical and worthwhile. We will be applying much of what we learned."
