*this event is free and open to the public Get your (free ) tickets here: https://www.ulpdxyp.org/young-professionals-events ABOUT THE EVENT During this Leadership Narrative lunch and learn, Tyrone Poole (founder of One App Rentals) will talk about what it truly takes to win as an entrepreneur and how failing is a part of the journey. This is a great opportunity to meet with and learn from one of Portland's shining stars. Seating is limited so register now and reserve your spot! ABOUT ONEAPP OREGON OneApp Oregon was started out of necessity. Tyrone Poole, Founder and CEO, was training to become a firefighter when he suffered a gruesome injury that hospitalized him. With no insurance or income, Tyrone's bills piled up and by the time he was released from the hospital he was broke and homeless. Tyrone took shelter in the YWCA, where he made it his mission to help people find housing. In his time helping people, one thing became very clear: application fees and the uncertainty of applying to properties were crippling. Application fees can cost upwards of $50, and there's no way for an applicant to know whether they meet the property's criteria. From this realization, an idea was born: one application, one application fee, transparency to all properties. OneApp Oregon was born. About The Portland Urban League Young Professionals The Portland Urban League Young Professionals (ULPDXYP) is a volunteer auxiliary of the Urban League of Portland that encourages Oregon young professionals to empower their communities and change lives through the Urban League Movement.

Supporting pollinators is all the rage, but how do you do it? This workshop will help you get started. You’ll learn about pollinator forage and nesting needs, which plants are pollinator-friendly, using bee-safe strategies to manage pests, raising mason bees, and how to identify bees in your yard. We'll conclude with a 45-minute walk around the neighborhood, looking for examples of pollinator-attractive plants, good design and pollinators as we walk. With Andony Melathopoulos (Oregon State University), Sharon Selvaggio (Northwest Center for Alternatives to Pesticides) and John Edwards (Brushy Mountain Bee Farm). Free but pre-registration is required.
