Building Bridges Initiative Summer Training Event

  • Wyndham Hotel 123 Old River Rd Andover, MA, 01810 United States (map)

The Building Bridges summer training event is designed to increase a participant’s ability to use and/or support implementation of best practices in both residential and community settings that result in sustained positive outcomes for youth and families who receive a residential intervention. Attendees will leave the training event with practical strategies to improve policies and practices in their programs (residential and/or community) or agencies (oversight/funding). The Building Bridges summer training event is being convened by the national Building Bridges Initiative.

The CBH Knowledge Center is pleased to announce the availability of a limited number of scholarships for this year's BBI Summer training event. The Building Knowledge Emerging Leaders Scholarship Fund is intended to support the professional development of leaders under the age of 35 who are committed to advancing partnerships among residential and community-based providers to improve the lives of youth and families touched by residential interventions. The scholarship fund will cover the cost of the training registration for up to five young professionals working in a leadership capacity for a residential program or a community program partner in Massachusetts.
