Paul Vandeventer, president of Community Partners will shine light on the key practices of action and empowerment he's seen in nearly four decades of working to launch and strengthen social and civic entrepreneurs.
"Community" these days is often used to describe that vast, amorphous bunch of others -- often the poorest and most challenged among us -- we must somehow either keep at at arms length but deign to help with charity or tightly embrace, organize and identify with as if we all were one and the same. It's not that binary. In actual fact, community begins deep inside each one of us, an amalgam of how we were nurtured by our immediate families, the human creature's powerful instinct to belong, and the circumstances into which we walk at our particular moment in history.
Join us for donuts and coffee, a BacPak DJ, interactive networking, inspiration, and a dynamic speaker creating visionary social change.
