TRAINING CORE

INVOLVING AND TRAINING LOCAL YOUTH AS AGENTS OF CHANGE IS CRUCIAL TO BUILDING TOBACCO AND CANNABIS CONTROL MOVEMENTS THE SJV

 

The senior faculty and community partners (see Community Engagement and Dissemination Plan section) of the NCPC have deep experience in research methods, policy advocacy, and polling. The training core will deploy a variety of peer and cross learning opportunities available to us as a result of the involvement of undergraduates, research associates, graduate students, citizen scientists, junior and senior faculty, and community partners. Cross learning, in particular, will be with campus-community engagement and student-to-student within and between institutions (e.g. UC Merced-Stanford).

The Aims of the Training Core are:

In collaboration with community partners, provide training in:

  • Research methods – focus groups, survey development, flash polling
  • Youth – youth engagement, adult-youth partnerships
  • Policy - translating research into policy, policy advocacy, writing policy briefs
  • Dissemination methods

 

Training will be for a range of stakeholders including:

  • Community youth
  • Undergraduate students
  • Citizen scientists
  • Emerging researcher
  • Center junior faculty

 

Training formats will include:

  • Modules provided by community partners
  • NCPC campus seminar
  • Stanford workshops
