Prepare for the next coalition meeting

Coalition and Community Members:
The November working session is quickly appraoching. In order to make the most effective use of our time during this meeting there are a couple of things you can do to prepare for the meeting.

We will be discussing the final two local coniditions on our logic model:
- School staff turn a blind eye when they hear about parties and alcohol use.
- Parents allowing drinking to happen in their homes.
A copy of the logic model may be found here: Logic Model

Coalition members need to come up with interventions that fall into the 7 strategies for affecting change- focusing heavily on strategies 4-7.
Seven Strategies for Affecting Change:
1. Provide information
2. Enhance Skills
3. Provide Support
4. Reducing Access/Enhancing Barriers
5. Changing Consequences
6. Changing Physical Design
7. Change Policies

These will be entered into the stratgic and action plan which can be found here: SAFE Coalition Strategic and Action Plan

Please take some time to review these two documents and brainstorm some ideas for strategies that the coalition could implement around these two local conditions to affect change in our community.

If you have questions about this process please feel free to contact the SAFE Coalition office at 319-293-6412.

Thank you for your continued support of the coalition!
