At present, BTCC offers several core trainings that are available to organizations, groups, and community members by request; Primary Prevention, Trauma 101, Implicit Bias, Dominant Narrative, and Crafting Compelling Testimony. All trainings utilize a popular education approach, where participants engage each other and facilitators as co-learners to critically reflect on issues in their community, organization, and lives.

BTCC Quarterly Gathering are a chance for the network to come together for shared learning, reflection, advocacy, & relationship building. Past gatherings have included trainings led by members, network feedback gathering, intentional community building across sectors, and more. We maintain flexibility with topics for these events so that they can be driven by members' current needs. For more info on upcoming Quarterly Gatherings click here!
Communities of Practice
BTCC currently hosts two Communities of Practice - the Implicit Bias Community of Practice, and the Primary Prevention Gathering. Both hold space for committed practitioners and community members to meet monthly, collaborate, and share space grounded in their respective topics. The Implicit Bias Community of Practice also serves as the connection space for BTCC Implicit Bias trainers. Interested in joining either Community of Practice? Contact email@example.com
Monroe County Childhood
Conditions Summit (MC3)
The Annual Monroe County Childhood Conditions Summit, affectionately called MC3, is a partnership between Youth Services Bureau and BTCC. The Summit offers space for community members, youth workers, parents, and youth to explore both how their daily lives are impacted by community conditions, and how we can collaboratively influence the conditions surrounding us. Summits are generally held in October. For the most updated information on Summit planning, facilitating a session, or attending the Summit, click here.
