Apply Now: FREE Training for New and Potential HIV Prevention Program Managers

Capacity for Health, a national project funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to provide free training and capacity building to organizations involved in HIV prevention services, with support from the Urban Coalition for HIV/AIDS Prevention Services (UCHAPS), is offering a FREE two-day training for new and potential HIV prevention program managers.

This fun and interactive training includes informative presentations, engaging discussions and skills building exercises on topics such as:

  • How to be an effective supervisor
  • Building and sustaining effective teams
  • Budget management basics
  • Tips for project management
  • Self-care and burnout

The training also teaches participants a framework called the “Three Dimensions of Success” from the Interaction Institute for Social Change. Instead of measuring success by results alone, relationships and process should be evaluated to comprehensively assess success. Seven core skill clusters are presented as the key for effective program management. Skill building exercises and informative “lecturettes” build participants’ confidence in five of the seven areas. The skill areas “evaluating results” and “communicating results” are omitted from the training based on C4H’s experience that most managers are already familiar with these skills and concepts.

Application Procedure: Space is limited and priority will be given to individuals who work for HIV prevention programs directly funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or by local/state health departments. Please register at the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MXHLLN8. Location will be given to confirmed participants.

For more information, please contact: Jamila Shipp at (415) 568-3325
