School-Community Partnership 101 (Jun 1)

Authentic community engagement and partnerships with community-based organizations are key components to creating equitable, culturally responsive school environments. Further, many youth development programs incorporate mastery-based learning and project-based learning practices into their pedagogy and practice, and can be strong partners to your schools in supporting your goals around mastery-based learning and culturally responsive sustaining work.  

In this interactive session, participants will learn how to map out the relationships within their ecosystem, identify what types of partnership and collaboration they are engaged in or aiming for, and strategies and practices for developing equitable partnerships. Guiding tools from a School and Community Partnership Toolkit will provide you with resources to explore during the workshop and to apply after the session in depth. 

School’s Out Washington is excited to provide training and technical assistance to support you in building these authentic partnerships with community-based organizations. We strongly recommend that at least one member of your planning teams attend, and encourage you to also invite others in your school community who may be interested, especially anyone in your school responsible for community and family partnerships or after school programs. 

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Participants will identify the relationships that exist within their Partnership Ecosystems and actions that develop and sustain those individual partnerships
  • Participants will identify strategies for building and managing relationships with people and organizations
  • Participants will learn different models of partnership and collaboration, and assess what type of partnership they currently have and/or what they are striving for
