Alive & Thrive Wyandotte County is excited to host its first ever Community Healing Conference! This conference, offered at no cost to those who live or work in Wyandotte County, is your opportunity to participate in the groundbreaking work of building a trauma-informed and more resilient community.

What’s more, it’s our opportunity to do what we love to do: bring talented people together to discuss how we can promote healing and resilience in Wyandotte County. This is why we have designed our conference to inspire us all to embrace our challenges and opportunities with an interactive, hands-on, roll-up-the-sleeves, and get-to-work approach.

We’ll have speakers, presentations about Alive & Thrive, and a review of Community Projects that will demonstrate the many different ways we can build a resilient community.

We will spend the day learning and working together. There will be interactive, solution focused conversations. There will be speakers, including the inspiring story of how three sisters relied on their community to survive a childhood of incest and abuse. But most important, there will be you and your ideas for how we can use what we already know about trauma and resilience to build a healthier, safer, and stronger Wyandotte County.

 

Links will be sent via email prior to start of conference.

The Event

Alive & Thrive Wyandotte County is excited to hold its first-ever “Community Healing Conference.” Offered free to our community, this virtual conference is designed to advance our vision of preventing trauma and promoting healing in Wyandotte County. Due to the spread of the Delta variant, we will host this event exclusively online on [ Date ] from [ Times ]. In order to promote interactivity among conference participants, Alive & Thrive partner organizations will host “interactive watch parties” for up to 10 people.

 

The conference will consist of interactive workshops and speakers, including the inspiring story of how three sisters relied on their community to survive a childhood of incest and abuse. Our goal for the day: to learn how we can draw from our community’s strengths to build a healthier, safer, and more resilient Wyandotte County.

 

How You Can Help

Your sponsorship of this event will help fund at least one of three core strategies we use to support grassroots-driven efforts to prevent and heal from trauma:

  • Community Projects: Alive & Thrive provides mini-grants for projects lead by community members that aim to promote healing and resilience. The conference will be designed, in part, to solicit applications for these grants.
  • Trainings: Alive & Thrive hosts trainings for Wyandotte County residents and employees to help build a “trauma-informed” community.
  • Events: Alive & Thrive hosts events (like the Community Healing Conference) that expand our network and inspire others to take actions that promote healing from trauma.

 

 

 

Alive & Thrive Wyandotte County is a network of organizations and individuals that stimulates and supports grassroots-driven actions to help communities prevent and heal from trauma. We serve as a vehicle for Wyandotte County residents and grassroots organizations to express their perspectives about how to respond to and heal from trauma in their communities. 

SAFE. HEALTHY. RESILIENT. #ALIVEANDTHRIVEWYCO #WYCOSTRONG
