Coffee is on us!
Start your day with YNPN Portland, 9 strangers, and 2 of the winners of the Willamette Week Give!Guide Skidmore Prize. This is a free event that will bring together a small group for coffee, networking, and a chance to learn more about the opportunities and challenges around being a young founder & executive director.
Our two guests will be:
Janice Levenhagen-Seeley of ChickTech Portland:
Levenhagen-Seeley started ChickTech in Portland in 2012 to increase the number of women and girls pursuing technology-based careers and retain them by building a support network. The program, which includes high school workshops held in 26 cities, is built for girls who don’t think of themselves as technical but who have the aptitude to do well in tech. The participants enter the program through nominations by their high school teachers.
Tony Venzina of the 4th Dimension Recovery Center:
Tony Vezina identifies as a person in long-term recovery from alcohol and drugs and has been sober since July 20, 2012. He is the co-founder and current Executive Director of The 4th Dimension Recovery Center (4D), an innovative non-profit youth recovery center that serves over 500 young people each month with comprehensive recovery support services, including peer-mentoring, sober social events, recovery advocacy projects, mutual aid support meetings and much more. 4D is the first youth-led recovery community organization of it’s kind in the United States.
This event is limited to 10 participants - RSVP early!
