The expanded Southern Oregon ACEs Training team has reached a milestone of having trained over 4,000 people in our region, across all sectors, since the program was launched a year ago. The team is on pace to reach thousands more by the end of 2017. Recent sessions of note include two presentations and workshops with staff members of Goodwill Industries, as well as a series of trainings for the Three Rivers School District that will include all the district’s schools by the end of the first week of June.

In May, the team is providing training sessions for the Rogue Workforce Partnership in both Grants Pass and Medford, students in the SOU Psychology Department, and a number of other schools and organizations. Discussions are also underway to provide district wide trainings for the Medford School District beginning in August.

As always, training sessions are offered to all groups at no cost, thanks to the support of AllCare, Jackson Care Connect, Primary Health and other local partners. It’s also important to acknowledge the generous contributions from Kairos, Head Start, Jackson County Mental Health and the Grants Pass School District for providing the time and support over the past year for staff to participate as trainers on an ongoing basis.
