Dr. Donna Beegle - Opportunity Conference

Dr. Donna Beegle to speak at the "Opportunity Conference" in Bridgton in October!

On Friday, October 16, local organizations are coming together to host an Opportunity Conference in Bridgton.  The Opportunity Communities model provides guidance with implementing a community wide approach that bridges the gap between social service operations and the people who need them by creating a system where everyone is working together, and people in poverty are given opportunities to realize their strengths and reach their potential for moving forward.  When communities come together to harness the value of everyone, lives are changed forever. For more information on this conference please check here.

To register for this class check here.
