The Ohio Youth-Led Prevention Network, a program of Prevention Action Alliance, with support from the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, has released a request for proposals.
The Youth Participation in Community Change Efforts: A Study Group Request for Proposals will provide up to $2,000 for youth-led professionals to participate in study sessions and develop resources that build the capacity of adult allies. This is a skill-building opportunity for those who are interested in strengthening their knowledge of the theories that inform youth-led programs, and those interested in further developing the infrastructure of youth-led work in Ohio.
This RFP seeks applicants interested in deepening their knowledge of the theoretical basis of youth-led programming, preparing them to be leaders and resources in youth-led prevention. Eligible applicants are adult allies who have successfully completed the Training and Technical Assistance process or people from the prevention and behavioral health field who are invested in learning more about the theories that inform youth-led programs. Grantees must actively participate in each study group session and develop resources to build the capacity of adult allies who facilitate youth-led programming.
