Throughout 2022, Bounce continued to grow in number and reach, thanks to our dedicated trainers, caring partners from across the state, and generous funders, all of whom believe in the power of building resilient Kentuckians and Kentucky communities. As we look ahead to the work of 2023, we would be remiss if we did not also celebrate the success and growth of Bounce in 2022.

Trainings and Education:

Throughout 2022, Bounce trained 2,381 people on a variety of topics related to Adverse Childhood Experiences, trauma, and building resilience. 163 people from across the state took part in a screening of the documentary Resilience: The Biology of Stress and Science of Hope, followed by a facilitated discussion.

Bounce Certified Trainers:

Bounce grew its bench of trainers across the state by training and certifying 66 new Bounce Trainers in its Bounce University: Train the Trainer program, bringing our total number of Certified Trainers to 299. In addition, Bounce held its second annual Bounce trainers convening where Certified Bounce Trainers had the opportunity to hear the latest research related to trauma and resilience, learn about updates to Bounce trainings and training offerings, and engage with other trainers from across the state.

Bounce Grand Rounds:

In 2022, Bounce hosted two virtual Bounce Grand Rounds events with partners from across the state. Topics included supporting youth dealing with mental health challenges, as well as school safety and the impact of community violence on our youngest Kentuckians. 132 people attended the virtual events live with over 70 video views of the events on YouTube.

Statewide Reach:

Over the past year, Bounce has sought to provide services and expertise throughout the state of Kentucky. As a result, Bounce ended the year having engaged with 61 counties across the state in ACEs education, training, awareness building, and other technical assistance related to creating trauma-informed communities.
