The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) is offering a RCO Bootcamp designed to assist new and emerging Recovery Community Organizations in strengthening their organizational structure and capacity to provide recovery support services. Organizations are encouraged to send several staff, including the Executive Director, key personnel and even board members.

The RCO Bootcamp includes workshops and breakout sessions designed to assist new RCO leaders. 

Participants will learn skills to launch or build capacity of their RCO:

  • Learn new ways to demonstrate the value of peer services with stakeholders in your community.
  • Learn about guiding and supporting peers into leadership roles. One unique strength of RCO’s is the meaningful participation of peers and stakeholders at every level.
  • Learn the role of effective Board Functioning, Board Members, and Committees. Understand the role of Executive Director and how to implement in your organization

  • Learn how to create a strategic plan and how to sustain your work

This 1 and a half day workshop is free to attend. Travel and accommodations are not included.
