FY 2020 FVPSA Tribal Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Meeting

The purpose of the Family Youth Service Bureau’s (FYSB) Tribal Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Meeting is to provide training, technical assistance, and mentoring for FVPSA-funded tribes and tribal organizations. This meeting will allow for in-depth technical assistance focused on administrative, programmatic and regulatory grant issues. Attendees will also be able to share and hear from each other about promising practices and barriers to providing domestic violence prevention and intervention services that are unique to tribal communities and programs.

The Meeting will provide opportunities to:
  • Network with other tribal programs to build and foster relationships
  • Provide technical assistance to grantees to enhance and support efforts to successfully implement programs supported by FVPSA funds; and
  • Build capacity for program to effectively respond to domestic, dating and family violence while also addressing trauma and abuse
