Monroe County Childhood Conditions Summit 2017

On 12/7/17, BTCC joined Youth Services Bureau of Monroe County to coordinate and host the second annual MC3 Summit!  Just under 200 community members convened at the Convention Center to discuss, explore, and generate ideas for action around the theme of child & adolescent health.

  • Participants represented a variety of sectors and institutions, including: child welfare, medical, education, social services, youth partnering & youth serving, emergency services (food, domestic violence, housing & homelessness), higher education (social work & public health, community college), child care, juvenile justice, City and County government, township trustees, mental health/counseling, arts, religious, advocacy, and more.
  • Approximately one third of workshop offerings were led by people under the age of 25 and about 20% of all Summit participants were youth.
  • Workshop options were chosen based on feedback about community priorities and pressing issues related to health; they included panel discussions, experiential activities, practical tools, personal experiences, and academic perspectives.  The full program can be found here.
  • We expanded our lunch time spotlight presentations this year– presenters highlighted new or innovative programs and initiatives led by, partnering with, or serving youth.  Check out all 11 here.

Participant comments:

This year the Monroe County Childhood Conditions Summit included more youth voices throughout the conference, including during presentation sessions throughout the day demonstrating the capability of youth people to effect change and importance of social inclusion in primary prevention efforts.

The Childhood Summit exemplifies the importance which Monroe County residents and agencies place on the wellbeing of our children. Join the conversation!

“The content for MC3 Summit is rich and insightful. I always gain knowledge and leave with a take away action step from the Summit.”

I had several “aha” moments that will change the way I perform my job and help people.” 


And thanks to the organizations planning, coordinating, and supporting MC3!
