People and organizations concerned about improving the quality of life in Knoxville and share an interest in: Advancing civility and building genuine collaborations Developing leadership and personal presence Moving from dysfunctional to mindful and effective teams Learning how to let go of burnout and compassion fatigue Using new methods to resolve ACEs and trauma Experiencing “unusual safety” and “ extraordinary respect” Improving communication skills & experiencing a new level of listening What are some of the benefits? Workshops create powerful trust and bonding experience for groups and teams; improve inter-and intra-personal skills; and lead to personal and professional growth.   The workshops offer tremendous benefits to leaders, organizations, and community members who are concerned about social isolation, breakdowns in communication, and separation at every level of family, business and society.     How can I get registered and what does it cost to attend? These 2 ½ day workshops, which cost $525, are being offered for FREE to Tennessee residents thanks to the generosity donors. We have several FREE workshops coming up this fall and a few spaces are still available.   The October 30-November 1 workshop is being sponsored by the Alliance for Better Nonprofits, although it is open to the public too.   Register TODAY to reserve your seat:    Oct 3-5 Register Here   Public CBW Knoxville United Way, 1301 Hannah Avenue Oct 30-Nov 1 Register Here     Public CBW sponsored by Alliance for Better Nonprofits The Regas Building, 318 N.

National Mental Health First Aid Youth Instructor Training Locked Topic 0 T. Mensch   Metro Drug Coalition would like to invite a representative from your agency to attend National Mental Health First Aid Youth Instructor Training. This event will be held from October 21-25, 2019 at Bridgewater Place, 205 Bridgewater Road in Knoxville. Participants MUST attend the full five day training in order to become certified. The purpose of this training is to infiltrate the Knoxville community with Mental Health First Aid awareness and guide individuals to services before a crisis. This instructor training will be offered FREE to participants. Normally, this nationally certified training would cost $2,000 per person, plus the cost of manuals. Due to grant funding from SAMSHA, all course materials and training, are free to the instructors and will be taught by nationally certified instructors. Breakfast and lunch will be provided each day of the training.   Participants who successfully complete this training will be required to teach the 8-hour class a minimum of three times a year for the next two years. Those classes can occur within their agencies or can be offered to interested community groups, such as faith-based organizations and civic organizations. Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.” National Mental Health First Aid website. If you would like to take advantage of this great opportunity, please identify someone in your agency that would have a passion for teaching mental health first aid. Once selected, please have them contact  Courtney Niemann at cniemann@metrodrug.org; 865-588-5550 ext. 104. There is an application process for instructors that needs to be completed a minimum of 3 weeks prior to the training session.

UTK Center for Career Development Job Shadowing Program Locked Topic 0 T. Mensch   From the UTK Center for Career Development:   The UTK Center for Career Development is launching a shadowing program for undergraduate students, and we are seeking alumni, community members, and employer partners to participate in the program as shadowing hosts. Our inaugural one-day shadowing program will take place on Tuesday, January 7th, 2020 and is an opportunity to mentor and provide insight to students interested in your field while providing greater exposure for your organization , job function, and industry to UTK students.   To briefly explain job shadowing, it is designed to be an educational experience for students, as this may be their initial exposure to a professional environment. For others, it will be a chance to explore a career area they might otherwise not have exposure to or to investigate an interest area or potential major. The job shadow day itself may consist of observation of daily work, sitting in on meetings/other activities, touring your facility, speaking engagements from executives, informational interviews, or hands-on experience - all dependent on the nature of your industry and organization.   If you are interested in participating, please fill out this very short Google Form with more information about your organization and opportunities.   I am providing some FAQs and sample shadowing agendas for you to learn more about the program.   Mary Beth Woodward Assistant Director of Internship Development The University of Tennessee, Knoxville Center for Career Development  201 Student Union  1015 Phillip Fulmer Way  Knoxville, TN 37996  mbwoodward@utk.edu  865-974-5435  https://career.utk.edu
