utilizing and developing partnerships

Many times it can be tempting to work by ourselves, or stick with the relationships we already have. However, this is often not the most effective strategy for affecting change. As a result, each of the workshops offered during the conference will focus specifically on the needs of the target population and how to best attain beneficial outcomes. Whether you represent your church, organization, or are just an everyday person you will gain the knowledge and tools to take make an impact in ways that most affect outcomes. Often, this will mean that a workshop is co-led by 2 or more organizations in any one field. 

I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; Together we can do great things.
— Mother Teresa
