News4Jax: EVAC FOUNDER AMY DONOFRIO TO SPEAK AT TEDx JACKSONVILLE ANNUAL CONFERENCE

Amy Donofrio, Jacksonville — An educator and advocate for her students who won the national kindness award, Donofrio will discuss the false label of “at-risk youth.” She calls for a culture change in designating these students as at “at-hope youth.”

Donofrio often gets the same question: How do we reach our at-risk youth? Her answer: We must start by instead viewing youth as at-HOPE. The recipe for hope is simple, replicable, and requires just two main ingredients: relationships and redemption.
