The forum for Youth Investment Presents: Performance Partnership Pilots (P3) Webinar

WHAT: Introductory webinar to Performance Partnership Pilots (P3)
WHEN: Friday, Jan 9, 2015, 12 PM PST, 1 PM MST, 2 PM CST, 3 PM EST

This webinar will provide an opportunity for prospective applicants and interested stakeholders to learn what you need to do to be a part of this unprecedented opportunity to use federal funds flexibly and in innovative ways to help disconnected youth.

The Performance Partnership Pilots is offering an unprecedented opportunity for state, county, city and tribal governments to propose new ways to use their existing discretionary federal funding to better serve disconnected youth.  Instead of having to comply with the current array of federal requirements about how you use each related funding stream, sites instead have the opportunity to propose their own, locally developed, evidence-informed plan. The federal government will then provide the winning sites flexibility from any federal rules and regulations necessary for the site to implement their plan. Join this introductory webinar designed to help you learn more about the P3 and to help decide whether or not to apply.

Learn about Bullying Prevention Programs, Community Wide Efforts, Federal and Private Funding Opportunities, and How You Can Get Involved.

Despite being at the forefront of media attention, bullying is still a widespread occurrence. Numerous resources have been allocated to lessen the occurrences of bullying but to very little effect. The media uncovers horrifying bullying occurrences every week, such as the one involving the football team at Sayreville War Memorial High School in New Jersey. While many instances of bullying are discovered and rectified, many go unreported.
This 60-minute audio by Frank Klimko offers insight on the federal and private funders who are the backbone of the effort to reduce instances of bullying through the funding of quality programs. This audio will give an insight into the techniques and resources needed to make an impact on the situation. Almost all federal agencies are involved in bullying prevention programs and many private establishments are focusing on bullying prevention.

This webinar will help you understand:

• Latest Updates on Bullying Prevention Programs at Federal, State, Local Levels
• Factors behind the Growth of the Movement
• Federal, Foundation and Private Funding Sources for Bullying Prevention
• Community-Wide Bullying Prevention and Funding Efforts
• Latest Research and Reports on Important Principles
