In what ways can I involve my local prevention board?

  • Local collaborative boards can play an important role in program development and sustainability.  At start-up, present the research behind LST and share your local goals for the program. 
  • Provide board members with a fact sheet, the program’s logic model, theory of change, and demonstrated outcomes.
  • Help them to understand ways in which they can contribute to the program’s local success. 
  • Identify potential program champions or community gatekeepers that can help to build relationships that may lead to program support. 
  • Provide frequent verbal reports on the program’s impact and at least annually provide a written summary of program outcomes.
  • Identify board members to become engaged in generating outcome reports and securing sustainability funds.
