FREE Drug-Free Communities Webinar is back

This informative webinar will explore successful grant-writing tips and strategies while incorporating the LifeSkills Training program into the Drug Free Communities (DFC) grant. Our goal is to help you be as informed as possible about the grant application process while supporting the inclusion of our program as a part of your comprehensive submission.

Botvin LifeSkills Training (LST)  is an evidence-based, substance abuse prevention program for Elementary, Middle School, High School and Transitions students. Studies testing its effectiveness have found that LST can reduce the prevalence of tobacco, alcohol, and illicit drug use by as much as 80 percent.

*Space is  limited to Coalitions planning to apply for DFC funding. Only 30 seats available on a first-come, first-served basis so register today! Webinar will be available on-demand starting 2/26 for those who cannot make the live session. Email for details.
