Introducing Region 8 Learning Communities

You're invited to join any of our new Regional Learning Communities! An opportunity to come together to share innovative approaches and access proven strategies to move families and communities across Region 8 forward. 

Learning Community Members will meet virtually and assist each other by:

  • Discussing what works
  • Sharing data findings
  • Solving problems
  • Offering support for implementing new ideas, unmet needs, new organizational goals, or proving that a strategy works

This is a perfect opportunity for those interested in, or currently in the process of, receiving certifications within the Community Action network. It's also advantageous for those interested in, or currently working in, a learning community area.  Join your Region 8 colleagues to connect with others who are also going through the process or have that shared interest!
