The four-day Green Dot etc. training provides a basic level of competency that should allow for successful implementation of the Green Dot etc. program.

Over the last several years it has become evident that some institutions and organizations have had more intensive needs or challenges in certain areas and that in such cases follow-up consultation is valuable. This additional consultation/training follow-up is available depending on the needs of the organization. Based on past requests, we offer the following options:

1) Capacity building

Staff who are implementing the Green Dot etc. program will often request additional skill building in the following areas:

  • Relationship building skills
  • Advanced persuasive speaking
  • Group/Audience facilitation
  • Activity development
  • Training format development

2) Building program support

Universities, agencies, and coalitions sometimes desire additional assistance in building “buy-in” for the Green Dot etc. program. In these situations consultation can include:

  • Individual or group meetings with key stakeholders
  • Community-wide talks/speeches to build momentum and introduce the shared vision of how Green Dot etc. could make a difference.
  • Skill building around persuasive speaking, effective relationship development and collaboration.
  • Working with campus administrators and other campus officials and groups
  • Marketing/Promotion of training

3) Program planning

Implementing Green Dot etc. requires strategic planning. These sessions assist with the development of specific strategies to achieve successful implementation:

  • Recruiting participants
  • Budget planning
  • Considering alternative delivery methods
  • Evaluation and assessment

4) Comprehensive program development

Many times Green Dot etc. is only a part of a broader prevention strategy. This consultation can assist in the fluid integration of Green Dot etc. into existing efforts.

  • How Green Dot etc. principles can provide a framework for all services
  • How to integrate awareness activities with Green Dot etc.
  • Social Marketing principles and tools

In addition, custom consultation can be developed if none of these topics address your specific issues.
