Peacock Family Services is excited to announce that Marilyn Price-Mitchell, PhD, developmental psychologist and author of Tomorrow’s Change Makers: Reclaiming the Power of Citizenship for a New Generation, will be the featured speaker at our upcoming Peacocktail Party, Creating Building Blocks for a New Generation.
Each and every day, families, schools, and communities play important roles in raising tomorrow’s change makers—young people who will stand up for principles like freedom, equality, and social justice. But how does this happen? How do we support young people to become their best selves in a complex global society? Tomorrow’s Change Makers reveals new and surprising research, and delivers encouraging answers.
Marilyn Price-Mitchell is a fellow at the Institute for Social Innovation at Fielding Graduate University, where she studies how children grow to become caring family members, innovative workers, ethical leaders, and engaged citizens in an increasingly complex society.
The Peacocktail Party will be on November 7th, 6 – 9pm, at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, where our guests will enjoy sumptuous seasonal fare, delicious drinks, and great conversation. Together we will explore how families, schools, and communities partner to help our children reach their full potential.
Please join us for this delightful and insightful evening in support of Peacock Family Services. Tickets available at PeacockFamilyCenter.org. For questions regarding sponsorship opportunities, contact Kathy Haskin, Peacock’s Executive Director, at Kathy@PeacockFamilyCenter.org.
