American Dental Association Give Kids A Smile (GKAS) Program
2014 GKAS Community Leadership Development Institute
Over the past eleven years, the American Dental Association's Give Kids A Smile (GKAS) Program has established itself in providing education and oral health care to nearly half a million underserved children annually. As GKAS enters its 12th year, the program’s focus has evolved to become a more comprehensive program, particularly through the provision of continuity of care and the establishment of dental homes for children.
From 2007-2010, the GKAS Promising Practices Symposium offered an opportunity for like-minded individuals to come together, learn from one another and share valuable resources regarding how to move existing dental care systems to the next level for America’s underserved children. In an effort to continue this experience and enhance the concept, in 2011 & 2012 the Symposium shifted to become the GKAS Community Leadership Development Institute (GKAS Institute). Selected participants have an opportunity to learn, in-person, how to initiate, expand and/or enhance a GKAS program. View past GKAS Community Leadership Development Institute Ambassadors.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, HuFriedy, Henry Schein Cares, and the ADA Foundation, the 2014 Community Leadership Development Institute will take place where GKAS first began – St. Louis. An estimated 650 underserved children will receive comprehensive care during the St. Louis GKAS Program which is scheduled to take place October 22-25, 2014.
Goal: The goal of the grant application is to execute a process whereby eligible applicants interested in expanding, enhancing, or beginning their GKAS programs can apply for funds to subsidize travel expenses associated with attending the GKAS Institute.
Grant Award: For this grant, up to ten travel grants will be given. The GKAS National Advisory Committee reserves the right to increase or decrease the number of awards given.
Eligibility Organizations: State (constituent) and local (components) dental societies of the ADA and/or community based organizations providing oral health care for underserved children during GKAS will be considered. Applicants must reside within the U.S. 50 states.
Candidates demonstrating their commitment and ability to begin a new GKAS program or enhance an existing one will be considered.
Candidate should have experience with managing/chairing an access to care event.
These candidates should hold a position in their organization that will allow them to effectively implement lessons learned during the GKAS Institute.
Applicants do not necessarily have to be a licensed dentist or hygienist.
Applicant will be asked to serve as a GKAS Ambassador during the GKAS Institute. The GKAS Ambassador will work the duration of the October 22-25, 2014 event in a variety of capacities depending on his/her particular interest and program goals. Examples of duties of an ambassador span from being a clinic escort, working at the check-in/check-out process, sterilization area, photography, triage area, education area, entertainment area, and more. The St. Louis GKAS Clinic will allow for the needs of the participants while allowing them to experience first-hand the workings of the clinic. Due to Missouri licensing rules, not all participants present will necessarily be working as clinical practitioners.
The deadline to return the application is Tuesday, April 29, 2014. Only applications completed online by this deadline will be considered. All applicants will be notified of the GKAS selection subcommittee’s decision the week of May 27, 2014. Please contact the Give Kids A Smile Team at email@example.com if you have any questions regarding the GKAS Institute.
