Povrty Neighbrhd powerlines SHTK

A conference: October 4, 8am - 12:30pm
Grappone Conference Center, Concord

The Opportunity Atlas, an interactive map following 20 million Americans from childhood to their mid-30s, shows how prospects for children can differ vastly from one neighborhood to the next; certain circumstances can either launch them on a trajectory of success or trap them in profound inequality.

This conference will explore how we can replicate the features of “high opportunity” neighborhoods to help children in New Hampshire to RISE OUT OF POVERTY. It will include break-out sessions.

Keynote: Professor Dolores Acevedo-Garcia
Director, Institute for Child, Youth and Family Policy, Brandeis University

  • Sebi Devlin-Foltz- Opportunity Insights/ Harvard University: “Opportunity Atlas”
  • Delores Acevedo-Garcia – Brandeis University: “Child Opportunity Index”
  • Jessica Carson- Carsey School of Public Policy – UNH: “Vulnerable Families”
