The Community of Practice on Youth Educational Attainment Partnerships provides a forum to support learning, share knowledge about effective practice, explore solutions, and foster innovation with the goal of improving practice and outcomes. Our goal is to work with partners to create conditions in the field that will ultimately contribute to improved youth educational attainment outcomes.
Knowledge exchange forums bring together community organizations, school boards, post-secondary institutions and researchers to build a body of knowledge on effective practice for community-based partnerships focused on educational achievement. We feel that change can happen by creating a learning community where practitioners adopt learning and good practices, draw upon the resources and connectivity of their network and be more effective in their own work related to youth educational attainment.
What is a Community of Practice?
The Community of Practice provides a forum to support learning, share knowledge about effective practice, explore solutions, and foster innovation with the goal of improving practice and outcomes. We hold regular bimonthly learning and networking events across the city, which are hosted by community organizations and leaders in the field are engaged as guest speakers. As part of the Community of Practice, you will have access to information and people who can help you in your work, including a members-only website and regular communication on the latest information, links to news stories, academic research, upcoming conferences, policy updates, funding opportunities, and more. As it evolves, the Community of Practice becomes a network of informed, interconnected individuals and a repository for resources and promising practices.
Members connect with each other and share about youth educational attainment. Members of the Community of Practice on Youth Educational Attainment Partnership represent an array of organizations with an interest in youth educational attainment, such as district school boards, post-secondary institutions, United Way Toronto community agencies, community agencies, grassroots organizations, and advocacy groups. Benefits of membership include a biweekly newsletter, networking opportunities and bi-monthly learning sessions. Membership is free, as is access to all Community of Practice events.
