Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
The power to change lives: The UW Odyssey Project
Date: Tuesday, October 13th
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Emily Auerbach, UW Department of English
Abstract: Yasmin’s son rescued her from a crack house in Chicago and brought her to Madison, where she enrolled in the UW Odyssey Project. She now has her bachelor’s degree, works as a substance abuse counselor, and is on her way to a master’s in social work from the UW-Madison. How can one intervention, one alteration in a pathway, change whole families and break a cycle of generational poverty? Why is improvisation the best teaching method for helping at-risk adults and youth find their voices and change their lives? Come learn how the UW Odyssey Project (www.odyssey.wisc.edu) has been transforming lives for over a dozen years.
Host: Sprott
