Education Advisory Board

We have formed an Education Advisory Board specifically to help us inform our educational efforts in East County. Our board is composed of people of color, immigrants, refugees, educators, and former workshop participants. This group will also help us make deeper cultural connections with our beneficiaries by helping with our cultural outreach efforts at festivals and events.
