Support of other staff: dedicated “office” for one-on-one client meetings, client referrals, financial support, flexibility and support for program delivery
Initial First Steps Training in spring, then Training Camp retreat in fall
Weekly training, support, prep for programs at Coach meetings
Various systems to identify clients (from feeder school through high school)
