Training and Support
We want you to grow and learn with us and we never want to leave you hanging. We provide professional development training for all staff beginning with a comprehensive 2-week new staff orientation. This training series provides staff with the essential foundational knowledge of agency policies & practices, trauma-informed care, suicide prevention, medical wellness, self-care, and crisis intervention.
Direct care staff are trained in evidence-based models such as ARC (Attachment, Regulation, Competency), CPI (Crisis Prevention Institute), and PBS (Positive Behavior Supports).
In addition to ongoing internal training opportunities, staff are offered external training opportunities such as the ADVANCE Behavioral Health Professional Development Continuing Education (CE) Series, MAAPS trainings, and access to our online learning management system, eAcademy. Our eAcademy platform promotes independent and equitable access to training content ranging from leadership and supervision skills to mental health interventions.
Our Commitment to Diversity, Belonging, Inclusion, and Equity
“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.”
— Robert F. Kennedy
We are dedicated to working together to build capacity and change systems in order to be a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization. We still have work to do to fully understand and dismantle all forms of oppression and discrimination faced by our team members and the people we serve. We acknowledge that we are on a journey to celebrate and appreciate every identity (diversity), ensure all voices are heard, and those unique perspectives are brought to the table (inclusion). We also strive to remove barriers to participation (equity). Yet, we must ensure equity (fairness) before we get to equality (sameness).
As an organization focused on our mission to promote meaningful and sustained well-being for children, youth, and adults facing challenges, we strive to be an anti-racist organization, to support team members to be advocates for the voiceless, to bring awareness to racism and inequities, and to be purposeful in supporting our team members from different backgrounds by creating a better belonging environment for them. We understand that equity work requires a lifetime of learning, unlearning, and dismantling injustices, along with ensuring that we give people what they need to show up as their best selves.
We are RFK Community Alliance and we are dedicated to being on the right side of history.
