January 2012 Convivio Brings Together Parents for a Day of Strength

The January 2012 Convivio focused on fostering advocacy at every level – from individuals to statewide. Groups had the opportunity to work together to identify strengths and plan. There was also ample time for networking, sharing, and brainstorming together.

48 participants from 12 communities, including: Salem, Medford, Phoenix/Talent, Eagle Point, Gresham, Newberg, Albany, Corvallis, Hillsboro, Beaverton, Cornelius, and Forest Grove. We individualized the training for parents in Portland Public Schools; they were unable to attend because of the inclement weather. The goals for the Convivio were to:

Learn about advocacy at different levels; individual to statewide.
Present the revised professional development and ongoing technical support plan.
Participate, share ideas, and enjoy ourselves together.

TOT Partners: UNETE and Una Voz in Jackson County; Casa Latinos Unidos in Corvallis; Portland Public Schools; Eugene School District; Education NW; Oregon Migrant Education Services Center; Centro Cultural of Washington County
