Provider Power owners Emile Clavet and Kevin Dean were among the guests at a June 26 reception held at Walker’s Point, the home of former President George Herbert Walker Bush and Former First Lady Barbara Bush. The gathering took place following the announcement of the Barbara Bush Foundation’s new Teen Trendsetters grants in Maine.
A donation from Electricity Maine, through the Power to Help fund, along with a major grant from the John T Gorman Foundation, is helping to fund these teen mentoring programs. Each of the 20 Teen Trendsetters programs will pair 15-20 high school students with 15-20 1st graders who are struggling readers. The teen mentors will meet with their first grader for 1 hour once a week during the school year to work on reading skills using a curriculum designed in partnership with Scholastic.
Along with ENH Power and Provider Power Mass, Electricity Maine is part of the Provider Power family of companies.
