About this Event

Please join us for An Evening of Hope:

Shining a light on removing barriers to education for children and youth experiencing homelessness.

AWARD-WINNING SPEAKER & BESTSELLING AUTHOR: Josh Shipp

Statistically, Josh Shipp should be dead, in jail, or homeless. But his success as a preeminent author, speaker, and global youth empowerment expert is living proof of the power of one caring adult. A former at-risk foster kid turned youth advocate, Josh is renowned for the documentary TV series on A&E that followed his groundbreaking work with youth and families.

He has written two national bestsellers to date, “The Grown-Up’s Guide to Teenage Humans” – winner of the Nautilus Gold Award for Parenting & Family – and “The Teen’s Guide to World Domination.”

Guest Speaker - Dr. Robert Shapiro

Dr. Shapiro is the director of the Mayerson Center for Safe and Healthy Children at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and professor of pediatrics at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. He directs the hospital child abuse team and specializes in Child Abuse Pediatrics.

Dr. Shapiro’s interests include diagnosing and treating victims of child abuse and neglect, implementing child abuse prevention strategies within primary care medical practices and facilitating a public health response to childhood adversity (ACEs) and building child/family resilience.
