Direct Events, or One-Time Events, are a type of Promotion/Prevention activity that happens one time, such as guest speakers, movie nights, 2-3-day retreats or community events. These events have the same goals of either reducing or deterring specific problem behaviors or promoting the positive behaviors and outcomes that the ongoing Promotion/Prevention Programs have, but will only interact with the youth during the event. Depending on the type of event, they are more likely to focus on one topic or area (e.g. speaker about drunk driving) although some events could cover more than one area of focus (e.g. a movie night about avoiding gangs while becoming involved in prosocial activities).
