Event Details


Is there interest in your community in initiating a unique, evidence-based program for parents and youth to increase youth resiliency? How do you assess and develop organizational capacity for implementing and sustaining such a program? This webinar will hear from organizations that were successful in initiating and delivering a program that filled a gap in their regional service delivery and increased their capacity to support continued program delivery.

From 2014 – 2016, with project funding from Health Canada, Parent Action on Drugs (PAD) worked with 9 agency partners and collaboratives in diverse regions in Ontario to build their capacity to implement Strengthening Families for Parents and Youth (SFPY). SFPY is an evidence-based youth resiliency-building program that uses a whole-family approach. Partnering agencies were from eastern, central and northern communities and represented urban, rural and remote regions, including First Nations communities.

The webinar will follow a knowledge to action model, provide a brief description of the SFPY program, the evidence behind the program, and the resources and supports needed for implementation. We will hear how partnering agencies moved through implementation stages, from assessing the program evidence, the community need and fit for their target population and their agency service model, to the collaborative stages of planning and delivery for successful application of the SFPY program in their region.

Implementing agencies will discuss their challenges and lessons learned in delivering the program in their region and their plans for creating a sustainable action plan for the program in their region in the future.

Learning objectives:

  • Participants will gain familiarity with the program aspects and evidence behind the SFPY program
  • Participants will understand the knowledge to action steps followed by community agencies implementing the SFPY program within the context of a funded provincial project
  • Participants will learn the challenges and lessons learned by agencies and collaboratives in replicating the SFPY program
  • Participants will be able to assess their own need, fit and readiness factors in consideration of applying a similar program.
