“You can achieve anything if you just work hard enough!”
“You just have to pull yourself up by your bootstraps!”
The ability to be resilient, to withstand and bounce back from difficult situations, is considered a highly desirable character trait and the basis of countless Hollywood blockbusters. But what does it mean to be resilient? Does resilience only come from the individual or does it come from the collective strength of the individual and their community? Is resilience simply defined or defined by circumstances? What roles do social service agencies and community organizations such as Pālama Settlement play in supporting both individual and community resilience?
Connect around this idea of resilience at our Try Think community conversation taking place on Tuesday, September 1st from 4:00-5:15 pm HST via Zoom. Come and ask questions, talk story and share ideas and resources with your community.
This Try Think conversation is presented in collaboration with the Weaving Voices project and the UHM Center for Oral History.
