Download:

Learn about PlayWrite, a local non-profit founded 10 years ago which works with youth ‘at the edge’ to create original plays, powerful vehicles through which the voices of young people are heard. We welcome in the studio Lyndsay Hogland, program director, Alyson Osborne, coach/actor  and Ryder Lynn and Francesca, 2 young women who recently participated in a play writing workshop.

"PlayWrite coaches are drawn from the Oregon theater community, and are trained to work one-on-one with each young person. Within the intense structured activities of PlayWrite workshops, these young writers create original art. In the process, they learn to trust, manage, and heal their own emotional experiences; to work collaboratively; and to contribute positively to their communities.

Women, Money and Em(power)ment

Women, Money and Em(power)ment: Taking Responsibility for Finances; Taking Control of Destiny

Historically, women were not permitted to manage finances. Today, most women feel they lack sufficient knowledge to take personal responsibility for their financial future.  By abdicating financial responsibility to a parent, spouse, or financial planner, women give away their power: power to create the life of their choosing, maintain autonomy in the golden years, and have the resources to change the world through meaningful ventures.
