Please consider attending the 2011 Annual Prevention Conference, “Where We Stand, 2011.” The conference is being held on June 16, 2011 from 8:00am - 1:30pm. Sponsored by the Ulster Prevention Council, SUNY Ulster, Ulster County Dept. of Mental Health, Ulster County Dept. of Health, the Office of Community Research and the Mid-Hudson Prevention Resource Center, this year's conference will use a new approach to releasing results from the 2010 Youth Development Survey (YDS). The YDS was administered to all 7th-12th graders in each of the 9 Ulster County School districts.
The conference will bring together key stakeholders from schools, agencies, local government, faith-based and youth-serving organizations to continue to provide a venue where participants will actively learn how to promote protective factors and reduce risk factors for children and youth in Ulster. Networking opportunities are built into the conference and will allow each attendee to connect with experts in the field and access a multitude of professional resources.
Conference attendees will be provided with powerful prevention 'tool kits.' Each tool kit will offer community leader’s evidence based strategies for building local capacity and resources to support community development around prevention. Breakfast and Lunch are included. For more information please contact Cheryl DePaolo, Director of the Ulster Prevention Council, at 845-458-7406.
