    THE CHILD MAY NOT REMEMBER, BUT THE BODY REMEMBERS.

    Jackson County DHHS, and Family Services and Children's Aid invite you to attend this FREE training for community members who support those that may have experienced childhood trauma.

    Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are potentially traumatic events that occur in childhood. ACEs can include violence, abuse, and growing up in a family with mental health or substance use problems. Toxic stress from ACEs can change brain development and affect how the body responds to stress. ACEs are linked to chronic health problems, mental illness, and substance misuse in adulthood. However, ACEs can be prevented.

    Session Agenda:

    • Neuroscience and how Trauma Affects the Brain
    • Epigenetics—History and Trauma
    • Adverse Childhood Experiences
    • Resilience and Positive Childhood Experiences

    Preventing ACEs can help children and adults thrive. The science and research show that children who high ACEs, may face a life of risky health and social behaviors, chronic health conditions and even early death, without intervention. This session will educate on ACEs and how each of us can make a difference moving forward.

    Facilitated by Zoe Lyons, Director Jackson County DHHS & Bob Powell, CEO Family Service and Children's Aid

       

     -----------------------------------------------

    This presentation on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) will educate the audience on how ACEs affect our population. The presentation also includes information on brain development, epigenetics, ACEs, potential interventions, and how to build resilience in the lives of our children and our communities.

    Improving Your Team and Leadership Capacity
    *This Introductory Session Sponsored by Nonprofit Network

    Sometimes the difficult part about being part of a team or being a team leader is helping people learn to work together. A group of diverse people coming together to work on complex tasks and problems sounds ideal - until that group is frustrated, at odds and struggling to actually get anything accomplished.

    The more you understand peoples (and your own) work styles, work preferences, ways to process and communicate information, the better you can assist the team in being effective and most importantly reduce conflict and stress. 

    The introductory DiSC® assessment process helps to identify and understand communication and conflict styles, how people react under stress or frustration, what motivates – or de-motivates and engages people. The strengths and weaknesses of the team are keys to a thriving and enjoyable culture and working effectively and productively. 

    DiSC®? What is that? 

    DiSC® is a personal development learning experience that measures preferences and tendencies. This simple yet powerful model describes four basic styles. An assessment tool (taken prior to the workshop) will allow participants to receive personalized insights that will deepen understanding of self and others.  Additionally, the personalized insights share strategies for working with other Styles. The result creates opportunities to have a more engaged, collaborative workforce that can spark meaningful culture improvement in your organization—whether your workforce is remote, in the office, or somewhere in between. 

    In this workshop we will: 

    • Provide you with your personal DISC assessment results.
    • Learn about different Styles and the DiSC system.
    • Discuss how different Styles interact with each other and how that interaction impacts organizational culture

    Who would benefit most? 

    Anyone in a leadership position or anyone who supervises other people. Anyone who wants to understand themselves and others better.  Anyone seeking to create a more inclusive workplace (learning how to work with people different than yourself is a critical function. A common outcome of this introductory session is attendants bringing their learning back to their organization and advocate for an org only presentation, which allows time to sufficiently review your own organization.

    (This Workshop requires 30 minutes of pre-work completed 2 days before the workshop. Register soon to get your link to complete your DISC assessment. For this reason, registration will close Tuesday August 3rd, 2021 at 10:00 am

    Costs: $75 per attendee which includes your personal assessment


      ______________________________________________________________________________


    Everything DiSC® is a personal development learning experience that measures preferences and tendencies based on the DiSC® model. This simple yet powerful model describes four basic styles: D, i, S, and C, and serves as the foundation for the Everything DiSC Application Suite. Participants receive personalized insights that deepen their understanding of self and others, making workplace interactions more enjoyable and effective.

    The result is a more engaged, collaborative workforce that can spark meaningful culture improvement in your organization—whether your workforce is remote, in the office, or somewhere in between.

    A capital campaign is, perhaps one of, if not, the greatest undertaking an organization can do in its lifetime.  Nonprofits have one opportunity to “get it right” and approach donors, prospective donors, and the general community with a compelling case and sound plan. 

    What is a capital campaign? A capital campaign, by bloomerang definition, is an intense effort on the part of a nonprofit organization to raise significant dollars in a specified period of time. Usually the money raised is to fund acquiring or renovating a building, but often the campaign’s focus is on building an endowment for the future.

    If your organization is thinking about planning for a capital campaign this course is for you.

    The Benefits:

    This course, led by a Nonprofit Network Capacity Building Consultant, will follow a capital campaign syllabus designed to review all elements of a capital campaign.  Sessions will include structured conversations and participants will gain knowledge around key topics including: 

    • feasibility studies
    • factors in working (or not) with a campaign consultant
    • organizational readiness; case for support
    • prospect identification
    • campaign leadership, phases and planning
    • one-on-one personal asks
    • lower end asks
    • special event utilization
    • campaign materials
    • appropriate thank you and recognition
    • staff involvement
    • concluding a campaign

    Appropriate for: Executive Directors, Development Directors, and leadership volunteers who have had a minimum of 3 years of fundraising experience including one-on-one asks of individual donors, successful experience with and infrastructure for collecting and stewarding annual gifts, major gifts, corporate gifts and preferably solicitation of planned gifts.

    12 Virtual Sessions - Participants commit to working on homework between meetings.  Materials will be provided unless otherwise noted in the syllabus. Cohesive groups and times will be determined as you turn in your surveys
