ACES Community Champion Training – MiACE Initiative
March 14 @ 9:30 am – 3:30 pm
Thrive Ottawa County is a public awareness and educational project with the goals of improving our community’s overall understanding of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) while supporting the use of trauma-sensitive approaches and building resilience. We believe that by providing this information; creating opportunities to discuss and fully understand the ramifications of childhood trauma; and offering local resources, support, and evidence-based solutions, we will improve health outcomes in our community. We feel that by “speaking with one voice,” the message will be more impactful. One of the core strategies of the Thrive Ottawa County project is to train multiple “Community Champions” with the expectation that these Champions would help to further educate others in their sphere of influence about ACEs and resiliency. You are invited to become a Michigan ACE Community Champion (MACC). As a Community Champion, you will have the knowledge and tools needed to spread the message of ACEs from board rooms to living rooms!
Trainers will be Local Master Trainers from Ottawa County.
Continuing Education Credits will be available for Child Care providers through MiRegistry.
