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 2020 symposium dates are listed below. Space is limited, so be sure to register early, and spread the word to your fellow literacy providers!
