The Super Power of Intergenerational Living
Dr. Derenda Schubert is a licensed psychologist and intergenerational champion who has discovered the antidote to complex social challenges is the super power solution of living socially connected with people of all ages. Her extensive professional experience in counseling children and families has led her to create, manage, and evaluate foster care and mental health programs in Chicago and Portland.
She currently serves as the Executive Director of Bridge Meadows, an innovative organization that builds intergenerational communities where adoptive parents, youth from foster care, and seniors find new meaning and purpose. Named the 2016 Extraordinary Executive Director by Portland Monthly Magazine and a Portland Business Journal 2017 Women of Influence, Derenda has led Bridge Meadows to receive national and international recognition by the Eisner Foundation and Corporate LiveWire’s 2017 Innovation and Excellence Award.
Dr.Schubert will give an overview of the power of intergenerational living, including the Bridge Meadows model. She will speak about the philosophy and principles that guide the daily activities of Bridge Meadows and the impact that the model has on people.
Cancellations: If the registrar receives a cancellation notice by someone who has prepaid by 12:00 pm on the Wednesday before the Portlandia luncheon the individual has two options and that option must be communicated to the registrar at the time of the cancellation (please email firstname.lastname@example.org):
- A credit will be held and applied to the following month’s lunch but will not be held longer. The credit must be used by the original payee and cannot be passed on to another person. This will be tracked by the registrar and reported to the Treasurer.
- A refund can be obtained through Paypal.
No Shows: For those who have not provided the appropriate advance notice of non-attendance and who have paid in advance will lose the payment funds because lunch or beverage was ordered in advance and Portlandia still pays for the meal for no shows. Those who have not provided the appropriate advance notice of non-attendance and have not paid in advance will be invoiced.
