CODA Educators are health promoters with various academic backgrounds who share a passion and dedication to prevent drug abuse through education.
Each CODA Educator is assigned an administrative region, their region of residence, to deliver CODA programs. As a best practice for program delivery and effective messaging to youth, and since drug abuse is a regional phenomenon, CODA Educators deliver programs in their respective regions of residence since they are most familiar with the face of drug abuse in their areas, issues and concerns of the communities and how to address them. This is truly a grassroots solution to a grassroots problem.
As a non-profit charity organization, CODA strives hard to secure the funds necessary to recruit and train its educators. In addition to the rewards of making a valuable contribution to their communities and helping prevent drug abuse in their schools, homes and regions, building safe communities and healthy life for Ontarians, CODA remunerates its educators with a small honorarium for their program delivery, and covers all related out-of-pocket expenses.
This year, CODA will be holding interactive training sessions in Toronto, Calgary, Montreal and Halifax. Once the dates and location for each of those cities are confirmed, CODA will announce a call for applicants. To attend the an interactive training session in your area, you will be asked to submit a completed application form along with the completion of the online curriculum. Successful applicants will be invited to attend a full day of professional training sessions and workshops. Selected potential CODA educators will then be shortlisted for a hiring interview process.
