On Thursday, November 20th at the Multnomah Athletic Club in downtown Portland, Serendipity Center hosted it’s second annual Youth Opportunity Summit informational breakfast. The early morning event, hosted at MAC featured a speaking engagement from Dr. Wilson Kenney – the Co-owner of the Center for Integrated Intervention. Dr. Kenney delivered a focused and engaging presentation about the impact of poverty on human development, and discussed ways we can help individuals and families overcome such tremendous obstacles.

The Youth Opportunity Summit breakfast successfully brought together leaders from the education and business communities to discuss the social and emotional impacts of poverty, particularly it’s effects on children. Last school year, Serendipity Center students participated in the “YO” Summit; an all-day event designed to better equip Serendipity students and graduates with the skills necessary to become positive members of the Portland community.
Special thanks to Miller Nash LLP for continuing to embrace the Serendipity Center mission by sponsoring our Youth Opportunity Breakfast.
