Strong K-12 schools are vital to the strength and sustainability of year-round island and coastal towns. Our Education team supports the students, teachers, school leaders and parents of these communities by responding to identified interests and needs, and creating opportunities for connection and collaboration.
Join the Island Institute and Lives in the Balance for "What Kids Need Now" – an evening conversation with Dr. Ross Greene, internationally recognized child psychologist and author of "Raising Human Beings," "The Explosive Child," "Lost & Found," and "Lost at School" – Tuesday, April 10, 2018, from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., at Holiday Inn By The Bay in Portland, Maine. During this dynamic and participatory event, we'll look at some of the issues facing kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges; how Dr. Greene and his team are changing things for the better in families, schools, and therapeutic facilities; and how we can help all kids partner more effectively with their caregivers to navigate a highly complicated, pressurized world.
