Join Jorge Blau and Ron Cope from The National Center for Community Schools (NCCS) at Children's Aid for an interactive discussion about building effective partnerships.

Partnerships are vital to the successful operation of a community school. Cultivating authentic relationships creates an atmosphere for collaboration but is only the first step in this process. This two-part series will explore practical strategies and potential challenges that arise when aligning with partners, as well as how to leverage connections to strengthen engagement and meet community aspirations.

Participants will use various tools to assess and learn how to deepen their partnerships. In the second session, a panel of practitioners will discuss their partnership approach and valuable lessons learned. While this is a two part series, these sessions are not sequential and participants are welcome to participate in any capacity.

In this session, participants will:
 Grow effective community partnerships that support and connect to a strategic plan.Engage in practice discussions to support recruitment, alignment, and acquisition.Explore lessons learned with a community school practitioner panelRegister for this event here.
