Brian Deveaux was recently elected to the board of trustees of the Susan L. Curtis Charitable Foundation. The mission of the Susan L. Curtis Charitable Foundation and Camp Susan Curtis is to ensure that economically disadvantaged Maine youth develop the individual character, self-confidence, and skills essential to becoming independent, contributing citizens. The organization's efforts are focused on lifting Maine youth out of the cycle of generational poverty through transformative learning — using experiential programming to transform a disadvantaged child’s perspective on life and learning, thereby redefining his or her future. The supporters who were instrumental in the creation of the Foundation have always believed every child matters. Their vision became Camp Susan Curtis, a safe haven where young spirits are nourished, young minds developed, and where people believe fully and unconditionally that the future of every Maine child has value and promise.
