Capacity Building Good Capacity Building is a Key Part of Sustainability Capacity building is purposeful. It brings the right people to the table. Shows a plan for developing capacity among prevention partners. Describes and identifies partnership members (people), policies, programs, practices, physical locations and funding already in place. Has representation from target populations Include strategies for addressing gaps identified from the organizational capacity assessment. Good Capacity Building Addresses the Entire Community Don’t micromanage. Seek systemic, community-level change. Have results of the community readiness assessment been described and integrated into the Community prevention plan? Has the Community prevention partnership described its capacity to implement its prevention plan? Describe the plan one component at a time. Good Capacity Building Addresses Community Readiness Building Community Readiness Key Stakeholders set a tone in the community Who are they? Are they on board? Does the community perceive it as an issue Do we have feedback from the stakeholders? Educate key stakeholders Training and communication People/Human Resources: those who know Civic and Volunteers Cultural and ethnic diversity Prevention Government: Justice, law, state and local Treatment Parenting Religious and fraternal Business Schools, counselors, teachers, social workers, coaches Coalitions Economic conditions Geographic knowledge Youth Youth-serving Healthcare and mental health State and local government Community leadership Data and qualitative resources, statistics Accounting, Information technology Target population representation Media No one does anything without having something in it for themselves We innately differ from each other in very important ways: we want different things we have different motives and purposes we differ in values, beliefs, needs, drives, impulses and urges we think, conceptualize, understand, comprehend, and interpret reality different Who needs to be “At the Table” SPF-SIG Organization Technical Assistance DMHA Evaluation LCC/Fiscal Agent/Other LAC LEOW Workgroups Youth Evaluation Media Program & Policy Cultural Competence Training & Outreach There are those who need to be in the know – but not necessarily at the table Practices: Purposeful, sustained, continuous, a movement, not a program Town Meetings A well planned capacity building component is marketing! Marketing includes ongoing newspaper articles, television blurbs, advertising events, newsletters, anything that lets the community know you are there.

Look at the issue from all angles. Addressing the issues Where is the gap/risk factor? How do we know it is a gap? Is the gap related to physical, policy, practice, financial, human, cultural? What is filling the gap currently? What will fill the gap? Who can help fill the gap? (Additional staffing, training, or technical assistance needed to implement selected strategies, collect evaluation data, and maintain administrative requirements) Who will it address? Where will the gap get filled (physically)? What will be the sustainable funding/resource to fill the gap? Capacity Building In Summary: Key to sustainability Addresses the whole community Builds on Policies, programs, practices already in place Attends to and assists human resources and physical locations already in place. Shows the gaps in infrastructure and designs ways to fill those gaps.
