CATCHING KIDS DOING THINGS RIGHT!
The Center for Prevention & Counseling is excited to introduce the Sussex County Positive Ticket Initiative. This initiative isn’t just about the immediate smile a Positive Ticket brings. It’s about cultivating a community culture where positive actions are integral to our culture. By acknowledging and rewarding our youth’s good deeds, we’re laying the groundwork for a more compassionate, engaged, and resilient community.
A Collaborative Effort for Community Wellness
In partnership with Sussex County Law Enforcement and local businesses, the Sussex County Positive Ticketing Initiative aims to create an environment where positive actions by youth are noticed, rewarded, and celebrated.
How Does It Work?
WHY POSITIVE TICKETING? Understanding ACEs and Building Resilience
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are traumatic events occurring before age 18, including all forms of abuse, neglect, and household challenges such as food and housing insecurities. ACEs can have long-lasting effects on health, behavior, and life opportunities. Recognizing this, our initiative focuses on counterbalancing these negative experiences with positive reinforcement.
Why Counterbalance ACEs?
The Ripple Effect
Join us in this exciting journey towards building a community that uplifts, supports, and recognizes the potential in every young person. Together, we can make Sussex County not just a place to live but a place to thrive.
We encourage local law enforcement agencies, businesses, and organizations to get involved in the Sussex County Positive Ticket Initiative. Please reach out to [email protected] with interest. We look forward to hearing from you!
