The Yolo County Office of Education in partnership with Resilient Yolo, Yolo County Health and Human Services Agency, Child Welfare Services, Yolo Conflict Resolution Center, Yolo CASA, Family Hui Mainland, and Yolo SELPA, will present the 2nd Annual Building a Resilient Yolo Summit on Monday, Oct. 30.

Youth and family service agencies, school districts, non-profit organizations, and community members from across Yolo County are invited to attend this event to learn more about relationship-based strategies and cross-agency collaboration to strengthen programs that benefit children.

The three goals of the event are: 1) highlight promising practices already in use in Yolo County; 2) understand the opportunities and barriers to collaboration across youth and family service organizations throughout the county; and 3) strengthen existing collaborative networks and identify ones that may need to be developed.

The topic of Law Enforcement and Community Engagement is one of the important areas to be addressed at the Summit. Lt. Michael Carrol with the Alameda County Sherriff’s Office plans to share a successful strategy (The Barbershop Forum) his department is using to build trusting relationships among officers, the court system, policy makers, and the various communities they serve.

At a recent Barbershop Forum, Carroll stated, “We also want to make sure we are focused on solutions… What can we do together so that we can make our communities better?” More the 200 people attended the forum to hear from officials in Alameda County including, police chiefs, the District Attorney, city officials, and community activists who were on hand to engage with members of the public.

This event is open to the public. To learn more, visit  https://sites.google.com/ycoe.org/building-resilient-yolo or contact Andrea Barajas, andrea.barajas@ycoe.org or 530-668-3710.
