From the Georgetown Project: Parent Workshop- The Power of Trust

Join us for The Power of Trust: The Foundation for Strong Families and Friendships brought to you by The Georgetown Project.

Jen Mauldin, certified professional coach, Brene Brown facilitator, and GISD school board trustee will lead a discussion about how to strengthen trust in our families and friendships.

About: One of the foundations of strong relationships is trust. Although we intuitively know when we don't trust someone, conversations around trust can go sideways quickly. Brene Brown, a four-time #1 New York best selling author has developed the acronym B.R.A.V.I.N.G. to break down trust into seven elements. 

When: Wednesday, Oct. 5 

6:30 PM – 7:45 PM
Where: Bridges to Growth

Participants will be entered to win a door prize.
