Partnership Carson City is hosting a free informative webinar series every Tuesday at 3 p.m., each week covering a different topic that focuses on continuing to build a healthy, strong community.
“As a coalition, the way we’re set up, we can easily adapt to our community needs,” said Hannah McDonald, executive director of PCC. “And in a time like this we want to continue to educate our community members and show we’re still there for them even if that means through remote education and prevention.”
Samantha Szoyka, youth program coordinator for PCC, is presenting the first installment tomorrow, covering youth drug trends and what parents and youth need to be aware of.
“Other staff members will be creating the weekly webinars as well,” Szoyka said. “Topics will include how to keep your youth from abusing substances and how to talk to them as well as healthy coping mechanisms when staying in due to COVID-19. Questions and discussion are encouraged.”
Instructions for joining the Zoom sessions are available below. The presentations will also be recorded and available here afterward.

You may need to download the Zoom software — easier than it sounds; you’ll be prompted with instructions to follow. It’s recommended you test your system by clicking on the link in advance of the meeting to ensure your system is up-to-date.
You’ll be asked if you’re joining by computer audio or phone. Most likely you will need to join by phone (it’s listed on the top of the box), unless your computer has audio or you are using a tablet (like an iPad).
- If you click computer, it will give you instructions to test your speakers.
- If you select phone, the phone number option and meeting ID will appear on your screen. Just dial the number and when prompted, enter the meeting ID and follow the prompts.
There are several numbers provided and are designed to serve as a back-up, but each will connect to the same meeting (they are offered due to high call volumes).
If you’re joining before the meeting starts, you’ll see the main screen.
We recommend that if needed, you turn off the video of yourself and mute yourself unless conversation or interaction is desired.
