Making friends in a new city is hard. Onward Transitions constantly seeks innovative ways to integrate Pine House and Neighbors members into the real-life young adult community in Portland, Maine. Onward Transitions members live independently in their own apartments in Portland having chosen it for the vibrant culture and (young adult) friendly atmosphere. Onward Transitions co-founder Tracy Bailey recently met with The Adulting School co-founder Katie Brunelle to brainstorm ways to work together to create supportive and constructive ways for like-minded young adults to come together in person and through The Adulting School's (http://theadultingschool.com/) online community.
The Adulting School in Portland, Maine has received a lot of of press recently including this recent piece from NPR. The website states they offer "succinct, useable, accessible information in our workshops, summits, webinars and blogs. We've gathered quality, down-to-earth experts as part of our community to answer your questions and get you moving forward with the adulting fundamentals you need".
Onward Transitions-sponsored membership to The Adulting School is by request only for Pine House and Neighbors members who can articulate the benefit of joining and how it helps them reach their individual goals. Occasional activities presented by The Adulting School are 21+, and involve age appropriate social events and activities. Onward Transitions employs a harm-reduction model, and when appropriate works with each member to practice moderation in all activities. Onward Transitions is not an appropriate choice for emerging adults with primary substance abuse issues in the early stages of recovery or those who require sober living environments.
