Community of Practice - Cancelled

Thank you for your responses to the Community of Practice scheduled for Wednesday, November 2nd at Avon Old Farms Hotel. Unfortunately, the majority of you are unable to attend therefore we will have to cancel the Nov 2nd Community of Practice.
Again, we appreciate the responses and hope to be able to provide support as needed. Please do not hesitate to touch base with any Skills21 program manager or staff listed with questions or concerns at this point in the year.

Problem Solving: Recruitment & Retention 

Skills21 would like to provide support for recruiting and retention for Skills21 challenge-based programs. To better gauge what would best serve your school we have created a brief survey. The Skills21 team asks you to complete the survey below and provide any and all information that may help engage your student population.
