Marilyn Buhlmann is the first Restorative Justice volunteer to be honored in Youth Services Hall of Fame. Inducted last year, Marilyn is recognized for her 22 years of service as a Diversion Board member. "I love the act of giving, being able to share myself and my resources with this wonderful community that I have made my home for the past 50 years," she said. Recognized by staff as a "natural" at this work, she is described as an unusually compassionate and effective volunteer.
Any time of year your donations matter! Any time of year there are young people in crisis who are turning to Youth Services. Any time of year even a modest contribution can go a long way with a community-based nonprofit like Youth Services. We parlay your gift into more services for young people and families. Give because you can and it'll make you feel good. Give to honor a friend or in memory of a loved one lost. If you're having a birthday or anniversary and don't need more gifts, suggest your friends, family or colleagues make a donation to Youth Services in your honor. No matter what your reason, Youth Services counts on your generosity!

The WSESU School Board wants your input to help them in their search for a new Superintendent. Whether you are a parent/guardian, teacher, administrator, community member, or student, the School Board wants to hear from you. This will inform the Board as they develop the search criteria for the next Superintendent.
There are two ways to participate (choose one or both). Feedback is being gathered by a local, independent organization (Thrive, LLC), which the School Board has engaged to assist them. Thrive, in consultation with Vermont Partnership for Fairness and Diversity, is conducting both the survey and the community forums.
Survey: Share your perspective using this online survey. All responses are completely anonymous. Please share this link with your friends, colleagues, and family and encourage them to participate. Thrive will gather, compile, and report the results to the School Board. The survey takes just a few minutes to complete and is open until January 20th.
Forum: Join one of the forums to share your perspective in person. These conversations, facilitated by the staff at Thrive, will be based on the same questions in the survey. Forum summaries will be included in the report to the School Board, but individual responses will not be shared, or individuals identified.
Forum Schedule: Please attend a forum that is the most convenient for you. Brattleboro (anyone in the community) January 13th 5:30-6:30, Academy School Brattleboro (teachers & support staff only) January 15th 5:00-6:00 Green St. School Brattleboro (administrators only) January 15th 6:00-7:00 Green St. School Dummerston (anyone in the community) January 20th 5:30-6:30 Dummerston School
