Youth CHOICES

 

The Youth CHOICES Collaborative
 
Community building and mobilization for
Healthy youth development through positive
Opportunities,
Intervention and prevention,
Collaboration,
Empowerment and
Support to ensure success.
 
In an effort to eliminate duplication of efforts and multiple meetings, become more strictly youth-focused, concentrate on sustainability and bring diversity and greater representation to the table, SARGE merged with the Healthy Youth Task Force. The merger allowed for a better communication between providers, sharing of resources, planning of more activities, sharing of experiences, increasing youth participation, and increasing access to grant opportunities through collaboration and networking. 

 

 

 

 

 
 

Kentucky Derby Event Raises $42,000 to Benefit Child Abuse

3rd Annual Kentucky Derby Day Gala Comes Up Smelling Like Roses
Raising $42,000 to benefit the Children’s Advocacy Center of Bristol County
 
Fall River, MA – On May 5, 2012, Kentucky Derby festivities were realized at The Cultural Center in Fall River by those attending the Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) of Bristol County Kentucky Derby Day Gala. Over 150 guests adorned their biggest hats and the men sported their best seersucker jackets to enjoy bluegrass music, Southern-style cuisine and a raffle program—with proceeds to benefit child victims of abuse. The annual event themed, “Race to End Child Abuse” is hosted on the same day as the Kentucky Derby and serves as a concluding initiative to Child Abuse Awareness month which takes place during the month of April.

Gangs or just a group of friends?

           Yes! Gangs are recruiting your kids. In the past few years, many group of kids have formed their oun gang with their oun respective idea. Im not saying this is a bad thing, but seriously look at what your kids are getting into. They go to school, they meet new friends, and somethimes they don't feel like they fit in and there's plenty of BS going on at home and they feel as if their new friends are their new family.
