This is How We Do It: Panel Discussion on Community Collaboration

About This Session


There’s no one right way to do community collaboration – in fact, the more tailored to needs and context collaboration is, the more likely it is to be successful. Hear four panelists from different types of literacy programs across Texas discuss what works.

What we'll cover:

Collaboration! We all know how important it is – but where do you even start?!

Join this panel discussion to hear from four people at four very different organizations, all collaborating in very different ways – but all very successful.
