Marketing/Branding Activities

In addition to participating in the Learning Community, Rise and Thrive Grantees are encouraged to view Phase 1 as an opportunity to make the campus-community partnership visible and expend funds accordingly. For example, funds may be expended to promote the campus-community partnership such as marketing or branding activities; activities to build health awareness within the campus and the community that are centered around the National Health Observances (the National Library of Medicine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration also have robust information about observances); and other activities that demonstrate to the campus and the community that the campus-community partnership group is present and actively engaged.

Need Support?

Need Support? You are not in this alone!

A unique aspect of the Rise and Thrive Initiative is that the grant award includes training, technical assistance, professional development, and networking opportunities at no cost to the grantees. If you have questions, are feeling stuck, or need support as you work to complete the grant deliverables, it is important to remember that you are not in this alone. The Rise and Thrive Facilitation Team has several resources to support you throughout the process.

Rise and Thrive Learning Community Members

The biggest resource you have is each other. Please see the Contact List in the Rise and Thrive google drive and send an email to one of your colleagues in the Rise and Thrive Learning Community. Sometimes multiple perspectives ignite progress!

Drop-in Calls / Office Hours

Throughout the grant period, drop-in calls will be held for Rise and Thrive Initiative. These are optional calls/meetings in case questions or challenges come up for which solutions are needed. Office hours are offered via ZOOM on Monday mornings from 9:30-10:00am and Thursday afternoons from 2:30-3:00pm. Please check your Rise and Thrive emails and meeting agendas for connection information.

One-on-One Technical Assistance Session

If timing for drop-in calls does not work or questions or challenges come up outside of drop-in call times, please feel free to reach out to Matt Courser (mcourser@pire.org) and Laura Balis (LBalis@PIRE.org) from the Rise and Thrive Initiative Facilitation Team.

Work Slippage Form

Campus-community partnerships participating in Rise and Thrive Initiative are comprised of people. The Rise and Thrive Facilitation Team has a people-first perspective. We understand that the people working on this initiative have the potential to experience a considerable upset of their standard work experiences related to quarantining, working/schooling from home, lack of childcare, loss of employment, and communication barriers, among others, related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Rise and Thrive Facilitation Team acknowledges these challenges and realizes that additional stressors are being felt at levels that were previously unforeseen. If you are experiencing any level work slippage related to the Rise and Thrive Initiative as a result of these unprecedented times, we want to hear from you. Communicating these challenges to us allows us to work together to identify positive and collaborative solutions.

To communicate challenges, please download and complete the Work Slippage Form and submit it to Julie Cameron (julie@prevention-first.org) and CC: Matt Courser (mcourser@pire.org) and Holly Raffle (raffle@ohio.edu).

Grant-Specific Questions

For questions specific to your grant – payment, terms and conditions, requirements, etc. – please reach out to Julie Cameron at PreventionFIRST! (julie@prevention-first.org).
