ELIZABETH DEVANEY, MM
Director, Whole Child Connection

WHAT I DO AT CHILDREN'S INSTITUTE

  • Plan, develop, and grow a strategic vision for the Whole Child Connection
  • Manage an extraordinarily talented and passionate group of trainers, coaches, tool developers, and consultants
  • Build bridges across sectors and systems to develop common language around equity, social-emotional learning and a whole child approach to working with children and youth
  • Partner with adults who serve children and youth so that they feel prepared and successful in the work they do
  • Uplifting the importance of youth and family voice
     

PASSIONATE ABOUT

  • Dialogue and communication – finding better ways to talk to each other, whether it’s about world peace or whose turn it is to empty the dishwasher
  • Family – my own and the ones that surround every child
  • Positive youth development – the idea that young people have assets that need to be nurtured rather than problems that need to be fixed

    FUN FACTS

    • Mom to Eoin, Julia, and Ella – three amazing kids who inspire my work every day
    • I hope to travel to all seven continents (North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia down. South America and Antarctica to go!)
    • My favorite place on earth – Round Pond, Maine
