Signature Events

CADCA is built on the mission of equipping coalitions with tools, knowledge, and support to create positive change in their communities. The National Leadership Forum, Mid-Year Training Institute, and Drug-Free Kids Campaign Awards Dinner are our three signature events dedicated to engaging with our coalitions, advocating for positive prevention changes, and recognizing the work being done in our communities, by our communities.

Национальный форум лидеров

CADCA’s National Leadership Forum is a 4-day conference packed with multiple adult and youth-oriented opportunities to learn the latest strategies to fight substance use and misuse and hear from nationally-known experts and policymakers with a full day dedicated to Capitol Hill events. The Forum is held in the Washington, DC area every year, normally the first week of February and brings together more than 3,000 participants representing community anti-drug coalitions, government leaders, youth, addiction treatment professionals, researchers, educators, law enforcement professionals, youth and faith-based leaders. This event is held every year at Gaylord National, located in National Harbor, MD.

Полугодовой учебный институт

Институт полугодового обучения (MYTI), проводимый в течение 4 дней летом, предлагает углубленные интерактивные учебные занятия, специально предназначенные для лидеров и сотрудников общественных коалиций. MYTI также включает два уровня обучения для деятельности Национальной инициативы молодежного лидерства (т.е. «Key Essentials» и «Advanced»). От основ построения коалиций и стратегического планирования до оценки и исследований — вы уйдете мотивированными и вдохновленными. MYTI проводится каждый год в разных городах либо в конце июля, либо в начале августа. Это мероприятие состоится в отеле Hilton Chicago, расположенном в Чикаго, штат Иллинойс, с 14 по 18 июля 2024 года.. Learn more
