Youth in Transition: ACEs

Tuesday, January 8, 2019, 2:00pm to 5:00pm

Join United Way and Children's Trust of South Carolina on Tuesday, January 8 from 2 - 5 pm to learn about Adverse Childhood Experiences. ACEs are traumatic events that occur in a child’s life prior to the age of 18. These negative experiences can harm a child’s brain and development, which can result in long term health problems.

United Way of the Midlands formed the Youth in Transition Initiative to focus on young people, age 17 to 24, who are homeless or vulnerable to homelessness or are at risk for other poor outcomes due to a lack of social and financial support. This includes youth transitioning out of foster care or juvenile or adult justice; runaway youth; unaccompanied youth or other youth who fall through the cracks in our system of care. The movement focuses on Richland and Lexington counties.

United Way and its Community Impact partners are currently leading free trainings for anyone involved with youth that fall in these categories in South Carolina.
