Day 3 of our Summit programming continues with a reminder of “Why are we doing this” by OTOK Project Director, Dr. Sue. We begin right away with Toolkit Demo #2, which centers around collaboration and the study circle process. Two (or more) of our OTOK core team are joined by study circle facilitators, demonstrating the background, development process, and applicability of study circles as a general tool for local community initiatives, both for OTOK as well as other general objectives and activities. We will have plenty of time for discussion and Q&A.
Two more critical segments follow: CELEBRATING OUR YOUTH - Any OTOK initiative would be sorely incomplete without featuring youth, their voices, and their families. Youth and youth advocates will be available to identify their interests, needs, and goals.
Finally, SUSTAINABILITY - Many study circle participants voiced concern about the challenge of sustainability. We agree! We plan a session that provides some “backbone” and examples of strategies and collaborations in going forward. They include collaboration, networking, and leadership examples and opportunities.

"Parking Lot" discussions continue for interested participants*
*A parking lot is a list of issues that have been "parked" or set aside for later discussion. This strategy allows the scheduled meeting to stay on time while allowing an extended discussion later for those who would like to know more.
