May 31st, 2017 Bus Trip to Sacramento for Education // Office of Santa Clara County Supervisor Dave Cortese  | Community Connections: Events and Resources to Support Youth Development | Scoop.it

Join the 2017 Bus Trip for Education 

Sign up for the May 31 event to meet with Legislators in Sacramento
Join me on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 for the 15th annual Bus Trip to Sacramento!
 
Since its inception, the Bus Trip has increased from a handful of concerned residents advocating for public education funding to over 200 in 2016 who were navigating through the new local control funding formula. 
 
What is the Sacramento Bus Trip for Education?
Each year, my office coordinates the Sacramento Bus Trip for Education, which takes education advocates, parents, students, community leaders and residents from our County to the state’s capitol to meet with their state legislators. Last year, more htan 200 people filled four buses and spent the day meeting with dozens of state offiicals, senators and assembly members. The Bus Trip is sponsored by my office and the Silicon Valley Educaiton Foundaiton. 
 
Why is it important?
Bus Trip participants gain an in-depth knowledge of public education issues ranging from grades K-12, Community Colleges and four-year universities. Participants receive updates on current legislative proposals, a status update on school funding, and other key public education efforts. More importantly, Bus Trip participants have an opportunity to voice their interests and concerns directly to state legislators about public education issues.
 
When is the Bus Trip and where do the buses leave from?
This year’s Sacramento Bus Trip will occur on Wednesday, May 31, 2017. The buses will leave at 6:30 a.m. from the VTA Transit Center at Eastridge Mall in San Jose and return to the same location around 5 p.m.
 
How much does it cost to attend?
The Bus Trip is FREE for everyone. It also includes a light breakfast and lunch.

http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2880231 

 

April 28, 2017, 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM
Villa Ragusa in Downtown Campbell
35 South 2nd Street, Campbell, CA

Presented by the Child Abuse Council of Santa Clara County

Join professionals and community members from across the Bay Area for a day-long symposium on the impact of child abuse, how our community is working to address child abuse, and new approaches in prevention and treatment services. In its 35th year, the annual Child Abuse Council Symposium has long been known as an opportunity to hear new ideas, network with colleagues, and return to work with a fresh energy and perspective. Whether this is your first or 35th year in attendance, we look forward to your participation at this year's event.

Keynote Address by Charlie Appelstein, MSW:
No Such Thing As a Bad Kid! The Power of a Positive, Trauma-Informed, Strength-Based Approach in Reshaping the Lives of At-Risk Children, Youth and Families
Strength-based practice is an emerging approach that is exceptionally positive and inspiring in guiding at-risk children, youth, and families. Its focus is on strength-building rather than flaw-fixing. Strength-based practice begins with the belief that every young person has, or can develop, strengths and utilize past successes to mitigate problem behavior and enhance functioning. The keynote presentation, and subsequent workshop, will highlight many of the key principles and techniques of this transforming modality.  

Other Program Highlights:

  • Juvenile Hall, Persistent Disproportionality, and Juvenile Prosecutions of Those Who Have Also Been Crime Victims
  • Addressing the Needs of Children of Arrested and Incarcerated Parents
  • The Effects of Growing Up in Communities With Violence
  • Medical Community's Response to Reports of Child Abuse and Neglect
  • STAND BEAUTIFUL with Inspirational Speaker, Chloe Howard
  • Additional afternoon workshop session with the Keynote Speaker, Charlie Appelstein
  • Resource Fair featuring the Child Abuse Council Funded Agencies
