Building Change Together Primary Prevention Core Competencies Virtual Training

Against a background with green plants, a diverse group of people look toward the center with a pink shape and purple tools.

DATE: Tuesday, June 7th -  Thursday, June 9th
TIME: 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM each day
Deadline to register: May 25th


 ASL interpreters will be present throughout the training


This three-day skill-building training is based on the Partnership’s Prevention Core Competencies Curriculum, and reviews the implementation of domestic violence, sexual violence and teen dating violence prevention initiatives. New and past participants are welcome to join us–and together, we will explore fundamental frameworks for an individual or team to develop, implement, evaluate, and sustain prevention initiatives in California communities. 

Training participants will connect with a community of peers to increase program efficacy and access to resources. Advocates who attend this training will leave with:

  • Increased sense of community
  • Understanding of prevention theories and models for creating community change
  • Practical tools for planning and implementing more effective prevention strategies.
  • Knowledge of how to leverage existing resources and community assets for greater collective impact.

Returning participants to Building Change Together will have the chance to continue their learning with an enhanced track. As we explore the topics, we will move beyond current strategies and dive deep into methods of increasing inclusiveness.
