The Drumheller Mail - - REAL ESTATE -

The Drumheller and Area As­set De­vel­op­ment Coali­tion joined par­tic­i­pants from across Al­berta at Coali­tions Con­nect 2016 Oc­to­ber 4 and 5 in Sher­wood Park. The fo­cus of the work­shop was Ig­nite – Get­ting Your Coali­tion “Fired Up” for Change. Frances But­ter­floss walked the group through the process of cre­at­ing coali­tions and part­ner­ships that last.

The Drumheller and Area As­set De­vel­op­ment Coali­tion is a group of com­mu­nity mem­bers from dif­fer­ent or­ga­ni­za­tions who work to­gether to fos­ter the de­vel­op­men­tal as­sets that youth need to be­come healthy, car­ing, pro­duc- tive, suc­cess­ful adults. The more as­sets that youth have in life, the less likely he/she is to en­gage in risky be­hav­ior or ex­pe­ri­ence sit­u­a­tions that put him/her at risk. At­tend­ing Coali­tions Con­nect were Katie Sun­t­jens – REACH Well­ness Worker, Diana Rowe – Star­land County Com­mu­nity Ser­vices Di­rec­tor, and Jan­ice Hoover – Com­mu­nity 4-H vol­un­teer. Other mem­bers of the lo­cal coali­tion in­clude Drumheller RCMP; School Fam­ily Re­source/Li­ai­son Work­ers; Drumheller FCSS & Com­mu­nity Ser­vices; Al­berta Health Ser­vice – Ad­dic­tions & Men­tal Health, Health Pro­mo­tion and Health Care, and Ju­nior Achieve­ment.

“Work­ing to­gether can have a pos­i­tive im­pact on the fu­ture of youth in your com­mu­nity.” For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Jan­ice Hoover, Chair – As­set De­vel­op­ment Coali­tion, (403)364-2040.
