Literacy Texas partners with regional literacy organizations throughout the state to offer half- or 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, 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.
