About 20 Thread STL members and friends met at NCADA-STL on July 20 for a morning workshop, “Partnerships: Is the Juice Worth the Squeeze?” Facilitated by Dr. Paul Evensen, participants explored various levels of partnerships and how desired outcomes drive these levels of engagement. Participants also had time for shared discussion, reflection, and planning related to better structuring their partnerships to achieve community impact. Many resources and tools were mentioned during the training and they are compiled here.
We’re eager to continue to offer training and support to our members and friends and are excited to take this workshop to East St. Louis in September, partnering with our friends at East Side Aligned. If you are interested in partnering with us to bring this session to your initiative’s network, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
