4th Annual Monroe County Childhood Conditions (MC3) Summit
Youth Services Bureau (YSB) of Monroe County, with support from Building a Thriving Compassionate Community (BTCC), is thrilled to host the 4th Monroe County Childhood Conditions (MC3) Summit. See the list of workshop offerings here. The past three years, Youth Services Bureau of Monroe County and Building a Thriving Compassionate Community (BTCC) have convened approximately 200 community members for the Monroe County Childhood Conditions Summit (MC3). The theme for the first Summit was "what surrounds us shapes us," the second Summit theme was child and adolescent health, and our most recent theme was connections. The decision to organize the event around conditions was grounded in the understanding that children are shaped by the relationships they have, the neighborhoods they live in, the places they learn and play, and the community organizations that serve them. When children have access to safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments they are more likely to thrive- and thriving children are more likely to grow into thriving adults. For more information on prior Summits, please visit: http://www.btccbloomington.org/mc3-summit-2018/ The 2019 MC3 Summit will explore conditions by focusing on equity and inclusion. Every child is our child, therefore, we share a collective interest in our children’s future. As we offer the fourth annual MC3 Summit, we aim to bring together the community to explore the challenges facing our local youth and families. We believe that many of these challenges are actually the manifestations of inequity, and as we continue to build thriving compassionate communities, we know we must zoom out from our focus on individual youth and families to the conditions that frame our lives. We believe equity and inclusion in Monroe County means: -Every child and family is a fully recognized and included member of our community. -Every child and family experiences community conditions that meet them where they are and help them thrive; from the meeting of basic needs like healthy food, safe and affordable housing, clean water, to safe places to learn and play. We recognize that equity and inclusion are multi-dimensional, so we acknowledge the variety of personal, social, economic and environmental determinants that shape the trajectories for individual and population equity. Questions we are asking as we approach the event are: -What influences equitable conditions in Monroe County?-Who defines equitable conditions in our communities?-What are the organizational, community and public policies that seek to actively address inequities?-What kinds of resources and infrastructures promote or impede equity and inclusion in Monroe County?-What does an equitable community look, sound, and feel like? The summit will occur on Tuesday, November 19th from 8:00 AM- 4:15 PM The cost for the day includes breakfast and lunch; a limited number of scholarships will be available. The registration cost will be waived for youth under 21. We look forward to seeing you on November 19th! If you have questions, please contact Stephanie at email@example.com or 812-349-2506.
