ACES & YMCA host Parent Cafe

Sponsored by the Avon Coalition for Every Student.
Through a collaborative effort of community-spirited individuals, agencies,
businesses and organizations, Avon Coalition for Every Student (ACES)
seeks partnerships to foster efforts to reduce youth substance abuse and
promote positive, healthy decisions by young people in Avon.
ACES has funding available to bring in speakers for parents and to help start a regular parent café.
Parent café’s are where once a month, parents come out to discuss (with other parents) topic that
may concern them and their kids.
This is a way for parents to meet other parents and also hear about ways to help their kids stay
healthy. The YMCA will facilitate the discussions and also watch any of the kids for free. The YMCA is
able to do the parent cafes following the aftercare program so parents would not have to come back
out, but just stay for an hour when they pick up their kids.
