Raising community awareness of issues facing the TAY population is critical to the success of this project. UCS and the TAY Leadership Team are launching a speaker series aimed at engaging the community in the needs of the TAY population in Johnson County. Events in the series will take place monthly through spring 2019 and will address key issues for TAY support and service providers. Below is information on the first two events in the series. Look for information on additional TAY Speaker Series event dates in upcoming eNews editions. This speaker series has been made possible thanks to grant support from the REACH Healthcare Foundation.
October 26, 1:00-2:30 p.m.: Homeless Youth Simulation

Young people involved in the child welfare or juvenile justice system must often navigate numerous public systems to access the services and support they need. Many have experienced high levels of trauma, violence, instability and loss. This simulation will increase participants' awareness and understanding of the journey many TAY face.
