From October 1 to 15, Participants should complete the online training to create a Strategies To Act Now (STAN) Plan. Participants will learn the leadership and prevention skills necessary to make a difference in their school and community through the following training topics: leadership, alcohol and other drug trends, networking and advocacy, fundraising, project planning and virtual prevention strategies. Participants should meet virtually, or in a safe, socially-distanced manner, with their Team to develop a STAN Plan that directly addresses a youth substance use issue in their school or community. Teams will submit their plan to Virginia ABC for review by YADAPP Youth Staff.
From October 23 to 30, Participants should work together to make any requested STAN Plan modifications to be considered for a Mini Grant.
