Remember When? - Dexter

Free

with Stephanie Doore

Calendar Apr 29, 2021 at 5:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Remember all of the pressures, fears and dreams you had when you were a teenager? In the best of circumstances it was challenging to juggle school responsibilities with the complexities of teen friendships and relationships. For some of us, the experience felt isolating and anxiety-provoking. If we were fortunate, we had an adult who was "in our corner" who believed in us enough to help us figure it all out. Unfortunately, many teens in Maine are in foster care and lack the parental supports they need to navigate these unchartered waters. They need adults who will step up for them and help them see their potential so that they can achieve their future goals. Let's create a community where all teens will feel included, valued and know that they matter. It is astonishing to see what they are capable of when they know that they are seen. Find out more about how you can help teens by becoming a foster parent. For those unable to foster but interested in helping in a different way, this class is for you too as we will be speaking to that as well. On behalf of some of Maine's most vulnerable but incredibly important youth, thank you for considering this class. Stephanie Doore is a Program Coordinator with Community Health and Counseling Services and has worked with foster families for over thirty years. She is the recipient of both state and national awards for her work in the foster care system.

Be an EMPOWERED EMPATH and Create a Life you Love!

$25

with Angie Butler Welch

Calendar May 5, 2021 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

An empath is someone who is highly aware of the emotions of those around them, to the point of feeling those emotions themselves. At times empaths may even feel the physical pain of others and can easily tune into the true intentions of the people around them. Empaths see the world differently than other people; they’re keenly aware of others, their pain points, and what they need emotionally. Are you an empath? Do you embrace it, or do you find it a burden? It’s time to wake up to the true GIFTS and POWER that you can access as an empath. What kind of empath are you currently? What kind of empath would you like to be? Ready to make the change? I’ll share tips and actions you can use to start feeling more empowered, even before the workshop ends!
