The Sixth Annual 90by30 Conference is this Friday, and we'd like to extend a warm thank-you to all our sponsors and co-sponsors, including Lane Community College, the University of Oregon President's Office, the Children's Trust Fund of Oregon, the Lane Early Learning Alliance, Friends of 90by30, and SELCO Community Credit Union. More than 25 cosponsoring agencies are helping make this event a reality by participating in our lunchtime Making Connections Resource Fair, where attendees can meet others with a passion for creating safe, healthy communities for children and families.
We're excited to welcome Carmen Urbina, Deputy Director of the Oregon Department of Eduation, as our keynote speaker on "Making Connections with Traditional and Non-Traditional Partners." From the groundbreaking, born-in-Portland mentoring program Friends of the Children, Founder Duncan Campbell and Director of Research Susan Walsh will highlight their effort to help children and youth by breaking the cycle of generational poverty. Our afternoon workshops will be faciliated by a mixture of familiar 90by30 faces and newcomers, like the teen and young adult volunteers in the "Youth Tell Us What Makes Them Get Involved" workshop.
Thank you to everyone who has helped put on the 2018 Conference!
