Perspective Project kicks off the year by hosting Margo Walsh ’82

The Perspective Project is an Upper School student-led initiative that uses the power of conversation to learn from—and celebrate—diverse perspectives and experiences. The Project recently held their first event of the year featuring Margo Walsh ’82, the founder of MaineWorks and the United Recovery Fund. Margo discussed her work helping new Americans, people in recovery from substance use disorder, and previously incarcerated individuals who face barriers to re-entering the workforce. MaineWorks helps people access transportation to job sites; rental assistance for sober living; workforce outerwear and tools; dental, vision, and mental healthcare; and assistance developing practical living skills like financial literacy. Margo shared one essential piece of advice: “If your voice shakes, you have to say it.” Stay tuned for more events from the Perspective Project!
