Building Resilience in Maine and Beyond.

We will kick off our Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign soon. We had hoped to kick off in March 2019, but time passes quickly and we are working to layout our story and document our plan for funding. With the help of Alphonse, our very own videographer, we are creating a new video to promote our campaign and our cause. We’ll post updates as the time draws near.

Our goal will be to fund no-cost training and materials to three target groups: Continue reading “Building Resilience in Maine and Beyond”

We are excited to say that we have completed the first presentation of our new Building Resilience Community Training Program. The training was arranged by Agents of Change, of Massachusetts, and hosted by the Tampa Parks & Recreation Department. This was a dynamic group that engaged with the material and readily worked to apply it to their circumstances. We could not have asked for a better first run. They provided lots of good feedback that we will incorporate into future presentations. Continue reading “Building Resilience Community Training Program”

Building Resilience, L.L.C. provides resilience training and tools to individuals and communities that wish to promote independent management of adversity and problem-solving among their members. We work with those who have a desire to create an atmosphere of peer support and mentoring within their communities. The focus of our training is on personal resilience because that is where the learning must start. When large groups of individuals develop resilience Skills & Attitudes, communities can be strengthened. Abundant research supports the affirmation that resilient individuals are the building blocks of resilient communities. It is our goal to build resilient communities; one individual at a time. 

Join us for a free presentation as we introduce ourselves, our training program and the services we have to offer on: March 14, 2019, from 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.HopeGateWay Church, 509 Forest Avenue, Portland ME 04101  Continue reading “Building Resilience in Maine and Beyond”

Another year has passed. 2018 delivered many challenges. These challenges (some feeling quite impossible) have only served to deepen our commitment to improving the human response to adversity. Life IS uncertain. You don’t always get a heads-up before a crisis. Long before we get to processing and problem-solving any given crisis, we must respond. How we respond impacts the way in which we approach resolution. We know that the Skills & Attitudes of resilience can help. Continue reading “Happy New Year 2019”
