Building a Thriving Compassionate Community (BTCC) is thrilled to join Youth Services Bureau of Monroe County in coordinating the first Monroe County Childhood Conditions (MC3) Summit. We will explore the childhood conditions in our community and what we can do collectively to improve them. Community members and leaders, social service and healthcare providers, youth workers, business leaders, parents and educators are all encouraged to attend.
What surrounds us shapes us is both a grounding and guiding idea for the summit. Children are shaped by the relationships they are a part of, the neighborhoods they live in, the places they learn and play, and the policies and practices developed by the organizations and institutions with which their families interact. When children have access to safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and environments they are more likely to thrive – and thriving children are more likely to grow into thriving adults. What we do as a community and in the community affects those conditions. Registration is open now!
