For a third year, Literacy Texas is partnering with regional literacy organizations throughout the state to offer one-day literacy symposiums. Funded by the Volunteer Training Initiative grant from the TWC, these symposiums provide free professional development for volunteers and staff of nonprofit, community-based, and faith-based organizations. They are an excellent place to learn and network with other literacy providers in your region.

Our 2017-2018 symposium dates are listed below. Space is limited, so be sure to register early, and spread the word to your fellow literacy providers!
