Prevention Leaders Cohort

The Prevention Leaders Cohort was created by leaders in the
prevention field for leaders in the prevention field.

This Hue Journey is an intensive skill-building experience. The program will significantly improve facilitative leadership capabilities in the context of coalition work, develop facilitation methods, and provide a fun learning environment. Participants will be part of a learning community and support system lasting long beyond the five cohort intensives.

Angie Asa-Lovstad and Karie Terhark, your guides on this Journey, have over 25-years of combined experience leading community coalitions in the drug and alcohol prevention scope. Together they have also led state-wide collaboration using tools that will be taught in the Prevention Leaders Cohort to ensure coalition members are included in every step of the process, organically creating buy-in and sustainability.

HUE Prevention Leaders Cohort is a 15-month commitment. We meet two times each month (or 6 times per quarter) via Zoom.

  • Create a shared vision with stakeholders and collectively develop long-term and short-term goals.
  • Empower your stakeholders to carry out the plan that keeps people engaged to follow through.
  • Establish an evaluation practice with accountability within the teams to be responsive to a changing environment.
  • Build confidence in leading groups of stakeholders and community members.
  • Develop self as a transformational leader and use data to create shared awareness around community issues.

Client Testimonials

“The training that HueLife provided for Nebraska Prevention professionals was a huge success. Participants reported that they increased their confidence in engaging stakeholders in conversations about prevention, were better able to explain their data to stakeholders, and had plans to move their coalition work into actionable items. They also felt that the materials and tools (especially ORID) provided by HueLife were incredibly valuable. The HueLife team was extremely easy and flexible to work with in the planning process, especially given last minute shifts from in-person to virtual trainings. I definitely hope to continue working with HueLife in the future!”
