San Felipe Dental Project
Over 200 2nd graders in the poorest schools in San Felipe received, toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss. Students were given instructions by a local dentist on how to care for their teeth. In addition he did brief dental exams on site and provided the children with proposed dental treatments.

EPRC has sponsored school students for 12 years and we visited our 3 current (sister) scholarship students. It is a warm experience to see these girls growing and encouraged to continue their education and break the cycle of dropping out of school, getting pregnant and married at very young ages.

RESULTS
RESULTS is a nonpartisan movement of everyday people working to end extreme poverty in the United States and around the world. We focus on healthcare, education, and economic empowerment. On the domestic front, we advocate for programs such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, SNAP (food stamps), and Medicaid. Globally, we promote programs like PEPFAR and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria, which have received strong bipartisan support. We work with members of Congress of both parties to fund successful, cost-effective programs that help people to help themselves.

How self-driving cars will disrupt the economy and city planning
The shift to digital is transforming the way businesses deliver and track goods, from the point of initiation to the final destination.

Last-mile delivery, self-driving cars and trucks, delivery drone and robots, and artificial intelligence applications in logistics are all poised to change how companies send goods, how customers receive packages, and how the population gets from Point A to Point B.

This talk will focus on the disruptive impact that self-driving cars will have on technology, economy, city planning and society.Hans Witt

Portland Flag Association
Michael Orelove is a vexillologist.

Vexillology is the study of flags and a person who studies flags or has a general interest in flags is a vexillologist.

Michael has a large collection of flags including city flags, state flags, national flags and other flags. To get the flags of other countries he wrote to all the nations of the United Nations requesting the donation of a flag to be used for educational purposes. There are 193 member states in the U.N. and to date he has received over 100 flags of various sizes. Some are 3 x 5 inches and some are 3 x 5 feet. And some are larger.

We envision a community where music is accessible to everyone in the region. A place where people of all ages, income levels and cultures have access to music teachers, instruments and music performances. Artichoke Music is a community where musicians are supported in their art. Artichoke Community Music is a cultural center driving community engagement.

Nearstory
A map that only shows topography, roads, rivers, elevation and human settlements is a shallow map. isn’t it? A better map would explore why certain places have certain names; names are the handles of story, aren’t they? And each part of a place is not only a dell, a thicket, a bend on the river, a meadow, but a collection of the things that happened there over more years than we can count.

Nearstory believes that change is underway on how we interact with our surroundings. With the introduction of Amazon’s Echo an Google's home, we now have hands free computing requiring less screen time. Autonomous cars are heading our way and augmented reality interfaces matched with location relevant information is going to become more important. The world is going to become our screen and we need to find ways to make information work with that new interface.

Commissioner Lorretta Smith
SummerWorks is a program that connects youth between the ages of 16-24 who live in Multnomah and Washington Counties to internships and summer jobs between June and September. SummerWorks provides a range of job opportunities to participants in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. The positions range from internships with Senators, Mayors, and County Commissioners, to welding apprenticeships and other manufacturing jobs, to nonprofit work, to public sector jobs, to professional positions in law offices and architects, to food service positions and concessions jobs at the zoo.

In 2017, SummerWorks placed 1150 youth across the Portland Region into jobs, most of whom were from low income households, and over 80% were from communities of color. Traditionally, these youth have had the most difficulty with finding and retaining employment, especially employment with a career focus. SummerWorks seeks to bridge the barriers and get these young adults into positions where they can gain exposure to new career paths, learn workplace skills, gain valuable experience for their resumes – and just as importantly, earn a pay? check. We pay the Interns the minimum wage, no cost to the work site.

Youth must complete Work Readiness Training to participate and are paired with a SummerWorks Success Coach who helps guide them through the world of work. They also are offered financial literacy training, the opportunity to open a checking account? in ?a local credit union, and supportive services like bus passes to get to and from work.
