Regional Symposia

Literacy Texas partners with regional literacy organizations throughout the state to offer full-day literacy symposia.

Funded by the Professional Development Support for Nonprofit Adult Literacy Organizations grant from the Texas Workforce Commission, these symposia provide free professional development for volunteers and staff of nonprofit, community-based organizations.

Symposia are an excellent place to learn and network with other literacy providers in your region, and a great source of professional development for volunteer instructors.

The Literacy Texas grant year runs September 1 through August 31. Every year in the summer, we open expressions of interest for the coming grant year.

Expressions of interest for the 2024-25 grant year are open now. Click here to read more.

Expressions of Interest for the 2024-25 grant year have now closed. We’ll be in touch throughout August with everyone who submitted to talk possibilities.

Keep an eye out for the next opportunity to put your hand up to bring one of these great events to your part of Texas!

Please note –
We are making some important changes for the 2024-25 grant year, to provide a more consistent experience across symposia for all attendees, and to make things easier for both co-presenting partners and for Literacy Texas as these events grow in size and scope. These improvements will affect how all regional symposia are organized.

We will be holding two information sessions, and we very much encourage anyone who would like to learn more about holding a symposium to attend one of them:

Monday, June 17, 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Tuesday, June 25, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Don’t forget – you can check our calendar for online trainings available anywhere you can access the internet, and browse our YouTube channel for recordings of past training and professional development events.
