I want to take training in this program just to learn more about it and I have no plans to implement the program is that ok?
No. Sacramento County has funded Omni Youth Programs to train people who agree to implement the program at least once in Sacramento County as a larger strategy to build community capacity around underage high risk behavior.
I would like to use bits and pieces from this program to add to my program is that ok?
We provide training to people who have the committed intention of implementing the entire program at least once in Sacramento County. You can add additional aspects to the program but you cannot take anything away and must run the program as it is set up.
I live outside of Sacramento County, Can I become certified by you?
Yes, if you implement to residents of Sacramento County.
What if I want to become certified in a group program but I do not have a place to hold the group?
Family Matters is a send-home program where facilitators call families weekly to check in. Therefore it does not require a physical place to conduct the program.
