Consider CI for our youth violence prevention consortium

Posted 10 months ago at 11:32 am

I work with a county health department that got a grant in 2014 to develop a youth violence prevention initiative. The grant ended last year and I've been brought in to help create sustainability and build capacity, particularly with the community consortium that was formed. We began a strategic planning process in May and are beginning to think about setting establishing objectives when I came across the CI model. I think it would be a great process to integrate but we have no funding committed -- I'm working as a VISTA and my assignment ends in November.  From what I've learned, I don't think we're ready for this but I would like to get a handle on how we can be.  Are there tools we can use to prepare ourselves?
