What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

With the legalization of recreational marijuana in California, there is an urgent need to educate youth and adults about the associated harms to offset the low perceived risk of harm, easy accessibility, and the normalization and social acceptance of use. There is a sudden and urgent community-wide demand for information, tools and strategies, and a call-to-action to help prevent youth substance use and rising addiction rates in the Sacramento region. Various reliable data sources indicate that Sacramento County youth are initiating and using alcohol and marijuana in particular too early, too much, and too often.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Our agency’s mission is to create and cultivate a lifestyle free of alcohol, drugs and violence among youth and families through empowerment, family strengthening, skill building, education and counseling. Our goals are: 1. To reduce underage drinking and marijuana use by increasing the number of teen and adult prevention advocates in the county. 2. Foster a countywide social norm change that supports underage alcohol and marijuana prevention 3. Provide social support that strengthens families and empowers youth to stay alcohol and marijuana-free. 4. Build community capacity to become more effective prevention advocates.

The strategies we employ to reduce underage alcohol and marijuana use is to train individuals from widely diverse neighborhoods, youth groups, schools, faith organizations and other non-profits throughout the county to become Certified Facilitators in youth alcohol and marijuana prevention model programs of "Teens in Action", "Active Parenting of Teens", and "Family Matters". Additionally, we offer 'Community Workshops and Interactive Exhibits' educating the public, school, faith leaders, youth leaders, youth staff, parents, politicians, social workers and others on the latest research findings, immediately usable tips, and many resources for youth, parents and professionals. The 'Community Workshops and Exhibits' is in response to the community–wide demand for information, tools, and strategies resulting from the significant social acceptance and increased use of marijuana by youth. Schools, health providers, faith organizations, and social service providers are reporting that youth marijuana use is increasing so rapidly that it is a daily interference to the services they provide. We also have a strong social media presence, posting daily on all sites with current information, tips, resources, updates and facts for youth, parents and professionals such as teachers, youth staff, and mentors. We also collaborate very closely with several collaboratives, coalitions, work groups, schools, faith organizations, non profit's and prevention providers in the county to coordinate efforts, share resources, expand services, and increase access to through, cross over services in our widely diverse county.

Omni Youth Programs (OYP) has 40 years of experience successfully delivering alcohol and drug prevention programs to youth aged 5-17 years and their families. We have delivered services in 38 Sacramento public schools, Juvenile Hall, foster agencies, low income apartment complexes, parks, faith-based centers, nonprofit agencys and other community sites. All of our services have been delivered in diverse community locations and adapted to the unique needs of each group we serve. We believe this experience assists us in serving the wide range of youth, sub-groups, neighborhoods, communities and needs in Sacramento County. Omni Youth Programs has also implemented research-based programs for over 35 years. We have implemented the following model evidence based programs to teens and parents in Sacramento County: LifeSkills, Strengthening Families, Active Parenting of Teens, Teens In Action, Family Matters, and Behavioral Intervention. We also have several staff who are Certified Trainer of Trainers in three model programs for teens and adults. We have also acquired expertise in maintaining program fidelity while making necessary cultural adaptations. Our model programs have been implemented in Spanish and Russian as well as English and we have translated all program material AND videos into several languages using our current team of volunteer Spanish and Russian translators. It is standard practice for us to utilize bilingual, bicultural staff and to translate our program materials for both language and cultural continuity.

Omni Youth programs is very committed to program evaluation and utilizes the following tools to evaluate outcomes and indicate progress is being made significantly and in meaningful ways. Facilitator Training Post Survey and Curriculum Training Post Survey (customized by program). Please see our website at www.omniyouth.net for our most current full "Annual Evaluation Report".

We have accomplished a great deal in our 40 years as an agency. The highlights of 2017-2018 included 1. Training scores of adults and teens to become Certified Prevention leaders in 1-3 evidence based model programs to offer free in their communities. 2. Collaborated with four other prevention organizations, Sacramento County Coalition for Youth, and Sacramento County Alcohol & Drug Services Division to accept a $3.8M grant to be spent within the last quarter of 2918 including proof of outcomes and effectiveness. Specific activities we heavily collaborated together on include the following: Developed a media campaign Conducted Town Halls Held a Youth Summit Participated as readers and judges for youth drug prevention grants Held a Marijuana Summit Wrote script for an on-line marijuana educational prevention course for teens and parents. 3. Implemented Community Workshops in a wide variety of venues from conferences, community meetings, non profit and school professional training days on alcohol and marijuana prevention. 4. Designed and presented two marijuana prevention Exhibits at a wide number of venues. 5. Offered Brief Intervention Services for teens. Every year we publish an Annual Report which can be viewed in it's entirety at www.omniyouth.net.
