Building Positive Relationships with Youth
In response to requests from MRBN members, we are excited to partner with the Maine Youth Action Network (MYAN) for a Lunch & Learn focused on building positive relationships with youth.
In this interactive session, the MYAN team will lead participants in an exploration of authentic youth-adult partnerships. Every young person is unique; understanding core youth values and structural inequities young people are navigating better prepares all adults to build positive relationships with Maine youth.

A Lunch & Learn presentation and discussion of the newly released 2021 Maine KIDS COUNT Data Book with Helen Hemminger from the Maine Children's Alliance. Find out about key takeaways and opportunities to address inequities apparent in the latest data on how children and families are faring.
The Maine KIDS COUNT Data Book is produced by the Maine Children's Alliance every other year - the comprehensive report of the physical, social, economic, and educational well-being of children in Maine. The Data Book can serve as a useful resource to advocates and decision makers to ensure policies and programs are centered in supporting and strengthening families.
