Intro to our Team
Portland Empowered is staffed by employees of the Cutler Institute’s Youth and Community Engagement Team. All employees are part time on Portland Empowered, with many working on other projects within the Youth and Community Engagement Team.
As part of the University of Southern Maine, we also have the benefit of working with amazing student interns, many of whom went to Portland Schools and shared critical experiences with the students and families with whom we work most closely. Both staff and interns have presented at national conferences about youth, parent, and family engagement in education.
