Now that schools are closed, how are you reaching and engaging with youth? Which partners can you build relationships with to amplify your messages? We’ve all had these questions lately! During our next Prevention Peer Network Webinar, you’ll see that you’re not alone. We’ve collected a number of highlights from throughout the state to provide you with ideas and inspiration. You’ll also hear directly from your peers about the process they used to create effective messaging and graphics to meet their community outreach goals.
