Symposia

Literacy Texas partners with regional literacy organizations throughout the state to offer one-day literacy symposia. Funded by the Volunteer Training Initiative grant from the Texas Workforce Commission, these symposia provide free professional development for volunteers and staff of nonprofit, community-based, and faith-based organizations.

Symposia are an excellent place to learn and network with other literacy providers in your region.
