Participate in our Learning Community
Each month we host a training, workshop, or networking event for professionals working in community schools. Whether it's a Resource Coordinator Luncheon - designed to provide resource coordinators with a safe space to network, explore challanges, and engage in group think around an issues - or one of our quarterly Stakeholder Symposia - which look at using the community school strategy to address a complex challenge - we're bound to offer something for you. To wrap up each year, we host an annual Illinois Community Schools Forum each fall. Click here to learn about last year's event and what you can expect this year.
