Thinking of Our Children
Not every child in Greenville County lives in the traditional, two parent, 2.4 kids, one dog, happy household. Some of our children live in situations that are less than ideal, even those living with loving foster parents.
Join us for our August salon for a discussion with some experts from two organizations working very hard to improve the lives of our children, Fostering Great Ideas and Generations Group Homes. Hear how we can help some of our children who need love more than ever.
Admission is free, but registration is required.
Cash Bar at 6:00, Program begins promptly at 6:30.
David White believes that vulnerable children deserve bettter and found Fostering Great Ideas to implement child-centric, "great ideas" for the children who strugggle in foster care.
Fostering Great Ideas' mission is to improve the lives of children as they struggle in foster care. The organization improves the experience for every child in foster care. Knowing that losses multiply, and stress amplifies the longer a child stays in care, the goals is to provide support throughout the foster care journey, ultimately resulting in lives back on track.
Brian Clark runs Generations Group Homes, a residential treatment facility for adolescent males caught in the cycle of sexual abuse, where over the past 20 years he has played a key role in Generations' expansion from a 20 bed facility serving one level of care to a 76 bed facility serving three levels of care.
When & Where
TEDxGreenville was the first independently organized TEDx event in South Carolina. It all started in 2010 when a diverse, passionate group of TED enthusiasts from around the community came together with the singular goal of bringing an educational and inspirational TED-like experience to Upstate residents.
The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences.
TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, under a free license granted by TED.
Now in its eighth year, the TEDxGreenville movement ignites passions and builds bridges like never before, while highlighting the incredible people and organizations that make the Upstate of South Carolina one of the best places to live on the planet. Yep, we said it. Drop the mic.
