Generational Poverty PM Workshop
April 11, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Afternoon session description
(for faculty, administrators, and community agencies)
Held at the UMPI Campus Center, MPR Room
Dr. Donna M. Beegle grew up in generational, migrant labor poverty. Today she will share an insider perspective on how educators and social service professionals can improve outcomes for children and families living in the crisis of poverty. A child born into poverty today is less likely to gain an education than a child born into privilege. Dr. Beegle will illuminate practical strategies for changing statistics and improving lives of children and families in poverty in meaningful, repeatable, and systemic ways. Her school programs and Opportunity Community Model have been implemented in multiple communities across the United States, including K-12 districts as well as at the college level.

Books will be available for $25.00 at the session.
