RACS Expertise Available for Presentations and Staff Training


Rockbridge Area Community Services (RACS) reminds the community of the availability of their professional staff to provide presentations and training to local groups.  Speakers are available to present on a variety of agency programs and topics, including an overview of RACS’ services and referral processes and special topics for targeted audiences, such as Parenting Pre-Teens and Teens, Special Education Services for Children From Birth to Five Years, or Managing and Reducing Stress/Anger, to name only a few of the offerings RACS supports.

Tthere is a broad array of topics on which we can present.  In addition, we are often able to design presentations to fit specific needs upon request.  In the past year, RACS staff presented to local civic organizations about accessing RACS’ services, provided a model for crisis intervention services for the Virginia School Nurses Association, and delivered numerous workshops for parents of children of all ages. Staff have also been involved in providing training for local groups, such as childcare/daycare workers and school faculty and administrators. The RACS Speakers’ Bureau hopes to help meet the needs of local groups searching for presenters to supplement their programming. We can give brief overview presentations or we can do more in-depth workshops on topics of interest to a wide variety of audiences. We have topics suitable for youth, parents, employees, and professional staff. Most presentations are offered free of charge as a service to the local community. A more detailed listing of topic suggestions is available below.

To discuss RACS Speakers’ Bureau topics, or to arrange for a speaker, please contact Dennis Cropper, Ph.D., Executive Director for RACS at 540/462.6600 or email Dr. Cropper at
