Under The Right Circumstances ALL Students Can Thrive

The Role & POWER of Education In Molding Successful Lives.

On Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014, I met with a group of seven students (and parents/guardians) at the television studio in North Haven where OneWorld Progressive Institute produces our community programs.  Unfortunately, two of the scheduled students (one Asian and one Latino; a female and a male) did not show up.  We always strive for a rich diversity on every level.  As is stated in the NHI article, the topic of discussion was: The Role of Education in Molding Successful Lives.

The resulting OneWorld Education Agenda television program is about the Role and the POWER of Education in Molding Successful Lives.  We are grateful to the counselors at Hamden High School, and the parents and educators who cooperated and sent us participants.  Special thanks to Professor Horton at UNH; we wanted to have representation from 9th grade (Avishan Montazer) to college (Justin Exum).  Of course, we thank the students for their interest, willingness and their commitment.

There will be a YouTube segment on our channel within a few days when viewers will hear more specifics from the students.  We guarantee  that you will be surprised by some of what you will hear. Education is the hallmark to success. The full program will air on CTV in Feb. 2015. For those with AT&T Uverse the program will start airing in late January and will air several times weekly.

Thanks to all the students who did such a wonderful job. They represent what is possible when students value education and are committed, and have parents and educators who are engaged, supportive and attentive.  Special thanks to Khadija Hussain, the author of the NHI article.  She is a young woman who will be going places because she is smart, committed and very hardworking. Thanks to the NHI for this article titled: What We Learned— And What We’re Learning Written by Khadija Hussain | Dec 10, 2014 12:06 pm

Investing in People, Place, and Resilient Rural Economies: Q&A with Caitlin Cain

"The infrastructure of our communities is not just physical; it is also social and economic,” said Caitlin Cain, the new director of Rural LISC. In a wide-ranging conversation, she talks about the impact of COVID-19, the importance of investing in communities of color and the tremendous range of rural innovation that already exists—and needs appropriate capital to grow.

Making Recovery Equitable

LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones joined a panel of researchers and other experts brought together by the Philadelphia Fed to discuss how government at all levels can help small businesses recover from the pandemic, and how these programs must evolve to ensure equitable recovery. The webinar is part of an ongoing series examining best practices for bringing about equity as we emerge from the crisis.

Building the Skills & Confidence to Land a Good Job: One Woman's Journey

Volunteers of America Texas (VOATX) in Houston is one of more than 40 community-based partners nationwide using LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities model. LaSonya Bishop, VOATX’s Regional Director of Workforce, explores what it takes to help unemployed and underemployed people build their skills and find good-paying jobs – a task that is more challenging than ever with the pandemic. She does so through the lens of a Houston resident named Tamara, who overcame addiction and homelessness to graduate from a VOATX training program and get a job as a phlebotomist, which she has maintained since Covid-19 hit our shores. This is just one of many success stories catalyzed by LISC’s partnership with the Citi Foundation.
