Become a member of NCAPDA's Speakers Bureau and utilize NCAPDA's curriculum to educate youth and adults in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties about prescription drug and opioid safety.
Following are the examples of educational settings our Speakers Bureau members are assigned to based on their availability, interest and skill set:
K-12 Classroom Presentations (typically 9th grade health classes)
College/University Classroom or Event Presentations
Student Athlete/Parent Presentations
Parent Education Events and Conference Workshops/Seminars
Community Service Organization Meeting Presentations
Senior and or their Caretaker Presentations

Very flexible - volunteer for just those events and activities you are available for. Training provided and stipends available if needed. Public speaking skills a must, and teaching and presentation experience a plus. Lived experience with substance use disorder or other experience linked to prescription drug and opioid misuse/abuse especially valued. Ability to link NCAPDA to new presentation opportunities in Alameda or Contra Costa County very much appreciated.
