"The 22nd Annual Idaho State Prevention & Support Conference is a gathering focused on innovation, best practices, collective problem-solving and motivation to most effectively address youth risk behaviors, foster optimal health and realize academic success for Idaho students."


Plans are underway for the 22nd Annual Idaho Prevention and Support Conference scheduled for April 9 & 10, 2015 in Sun Valley. The conference is the annual professional development centerpiece focused on innovation, best practices, collective problem-solving and motivation to most effectively address youth risk behaviors, foster optimal health and academic success for Idaho students.

This statewide conference provides training for K-12 school personnel (teachers, counselors, administrators, school resources officers (SROs), school nurses, etc…), education stakeholders, youth development practitioners, community coalitions, law enforcement, juvenile justice, advocates for youth and parents.

I ask that you consider submitting a workshop proposal. My interest is to highlight the great practices in Idaho in an effort to ‘scale up’ what is working. This conference is designed around 3 focus areas:

  1. School Safety
    (Threat assessment implementation, bullying and harassment prevention, alcohol, tobacco and other drug prevention, safety planning / emergency operations planning, emergency communications, suicide prevention / mental health, crime prevention through environmental design for schools, alternatives to suspension / expulsion, etc…)
  2. Out of School-Time Programming
    (High quality program elements, getting and keeping great staff, program safety, program outreach, sustainability, working with high poverty students and families, culturally relevant programming, service learning projects, serving middle / high school students, innovative technology use, college and career readiness, summer programming strategies, social and emotional wellness, etc…)
  3. Family and Community Engagement
    (Engaging hard-to-reach families, FACE research / best practices, community outreach strategies, advisory board creation and management, tools for teachers to work effectively with parents, etc…)

    Please make lodging reservations early for best selection!
