Youth Leadership PPW Program Implementer Training

Regular price $ 499.00

Online or onsite Prevention Plus Wellness Program Implementer Training for Youth Leaders provides adolescents and young adults with an opportunity to assume a responsible and active leadership role by providing an evidence-based or evidence-informed prevention program to their same or younger-aged peers. 

Training youth and young adults as prevention program implementers opens youth to experiencing additional benefits beyond receiving a prevention intervention themselves, including:   

  • Becoming a positive role model,
  • Experiencing providing meaningful service to others,
  • Learning professional responsibilities, and
  • Gaining personal and leadership knowledge, skills and self-confidence. 

This type of youth leadership experience offers young people a unique opportunity to learn and demonstrate prevention program development, tailoring, planning , implementation and evaluation skills and knowledge as trained prevention providers.  

That is why this strategy is ideal for all young people, including volunteer peer mentors, general youth populations, and high-risk groups of youth and young adults. 

Complex and multi-session evidence-based prevention programs are not feasible interventions for training in youth leadership and would likely not be successfully implemented.   

However, the scripted, one-session evidence-based SPORT and InShape (alcohol use) Prevention Plus Wellness programs for youth and young adults, as well as the single-session evidence-informed Vaping, Marijuana and Opioid Prevention Plus Wellness programs are ideally suited for youth leadership because of their ease and brevity of use.  

Online or onsite Youth Leadership Training Workshops in Prevention Plus Wellness is one hour in length, and up to 50 youth with adult mentors can participate for just $499.  Training costs include PowerPoint slides for youth to provide the PPW program to their same or younger aged peers.

Training objectives include: 

  1. List three steps for providing Prevention Plus Wellness (PPW) screening and brief interventions.
  2. Demonstrate how youth can implement a Prevention Plus Wellness program to their peers.
  3. Review strategies trained youth leaders can use to provide quality PPW programs to their peers.
