Literacy Texas partners with regional literacy organizations throughout the state to offer one-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, and faith-affiliated 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.

Regions where symposia are currently offered:

  • DFW
  • East Texas
  • Gulf Coast
  • Laredo
  • South Plains
  • South Texas

We also present one symposium specifically for faith-affiliated literacy programs; this event is usually held online as faith-affiliated programs are found throughout Texas. Dates and other details about upcoming symposia are listed in our calendar, as well as in our newsletter and on Literacy Texas social media.
