We are excited that you have chosen to join this important prevention work in your community. Each member of the Discovery Family Coalition contributes in whatever way they are able to, offering the expertise and resources that are unique to their organization. Together we can create a positive impact for families, the community, and for your organization. As part of the coalition you are among friends who want to make a difference by strengthening families and building resilience in our youth.

In lieu of holding monthly or quarterly meetings, the coalition coordinators will work with you individually to discuss the contributions you are able to make. All coordination will be handled one-to-one on an as-needed basis between you, the member organization, and the coalition coordinators. A quarterly report will be sent out to all coalition members summarizing what prevention efforts have been made during the past quarter. You may be invited to complete a short survey each quarter to help ensure our quarterly reports are complete.

Did you know that one of the protective factors measured by the SHARP survey to gauge the well being of our youth is community connection? Unfortunately, that is an area where the trend is moving in the wrong direction, with youth feeling less and less connected to the community in which they live. You and your organization play an important role in strengthening that sense of community. How?

As part of the Discovery Family Coalition you will have the opportunity to identify where you can contribute to the prevention efforts in this area. It looks different for each coalition member because each member is unique, but here are some examples:
❏ Help connect families to the Discovery Family Coalition programs so they can access the benefits
❏ Provide parenting resources to be included in a Discovery Family Adventure or Parent Conversations
❏ Provide free classes for parents and/or youth
❏ Provide free family experiences to reward families that achieve certain milestones
❏ Donate items or passes to be used as giveaways/incentives for families that achieve certain levels
❏ Help fund program activities through participation in the marketing toolkit or Summer Passport program

Our overall goal as a coalition is two-fold:

1. Encourage families to spend good quality time together on a regular basis to reinforce family bonding.

2. Help parents become Prevention Specialists in their own home.

There is no better way to further our prevention efforts than to include the adults who spend the most time with and have the most influence on the youth we aim to help. Our goal is to equip parents with the resources they need to be the primary prevention specialist in their child’s life.

We are all in this together! We have a common goal: Strengthen Families and Build Resilience in Youth. We welcome any and all suggestions you have for ways to reach families. We invite you to be an active part of the coalition and share your resources and ideas with us at Wattson@MyDiscoveryDestination.com.
