Community Council Mini-Conference on School Partnerships

Posted by Southeast Philadelphia Collaborative on August 24, 2015

The Southeast Philadelphia Collaborative, in conjunction with United Communities Southeast Philadelphia, is hosting a mini-conference in lieu of our August monthly meeting. The mini-conference will engage partner organizations that do work in the South Philadelphia schools that are supported by the Collaborative, and also people who are in some way invested in our schools, parks, recreation centers and communities. The conference will initially focus on the navigation of the school district and its policies, and then move to highlight specific principals on a panel who will give insight into what their schools really need and what they look for in a partner organization, and finally end with speaker, Donna Cooper. The conference will be on August 31st from 11AM-3PM at Fleisher Art Memorial. All are welcome!
