Event Details

Webinar Recording and Resource

Event Description

As part of the Collaborative Mentoring Webinar Series funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention through the National Mentoring Resource Center, training webinars are held monthly which aim to guide collaborative mentoring practices that can be utilized among youth serving organizations who understand the mentoring in real life means staying up to date with current trends.

The Mentoring in Real Life webinar training, previously recorded, covered National Mentoring Month tools and activation of those tools. This included best practices with social media in order to drive recruitments, as well as building successful media relationships. Campaign tools from National Mentoring Month are for year round recruitment, visibility, and creation of innovative practices. Social media can also be a powerful tool for engagement of the community and increasing visibility within a community. To build a successful media relationship is to increase recognition and distribution of the importance of mentoring.

USDA Webinar Series Offers Farm to School Strategies for Native Communities

Event Description

If you are seeking ways to incorporate healthy eating and Native foods into your Club programs, you can learn from this free Farm to School webinar series. “Farm to Table” or “Farm to School” is the quick way to describe food’s journey from where it is grown to where it is eaten. In April and May, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Office of Community Food Systems hosted a four-part webinar series focused on strategies to integrate Farm to School models into Native communities. Each webinar features a different guest speaker who shares best practices for ways to bring Native youth closer to their local food traditions and to build sustainable partnerships for nutrition programs. These are a great resource for anyone looking to promote healthy eating and Native culture and for programs like On the T.R.A.I.L. to Diabetes Prevention.

Check out the four webinars below to learn more about Farm to School and what it could look like in your community!
