“Raising of America” film screening to be held

Posted: Thursday, October 26, 2017

The United Way of Huntington County’s Early Learning Alliance will be hosting a film screening of “Raising of America” in partnership with the Indiana Youth Institute. The film focuses on the importance of Early Childhood Education as one of the first steps to creating a successful community. From the Raising of America Website http://raisingofamerica.org/.

“The Signature Hour interweaves discoveries from neuroscience with the stories of families and communities doing all they can to provide the nurturing environments all babies and young children need to thrive while too often hindered by social conditions. And when parents are pressed, babies pay the price. The consequences may last a lifetime, shaping individual outcomes learning, earning and mental and physical health as well as the future health, prosperity and equity of the nation. Improving conditions for families with young children is perhaps the most prudent investment any nation can make.”

The film screening will take place at Crestview Middle School on Thursday, November 2 at 6 p.m. A light dinner will be provided. The dinner and screening are free and open to the public, but an RSVP is requested at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HuntingtonCoYWC110217 or by calling the United Way office at (260) 356-6160.
