In 2016, over 65 members of the community came together to share resources to help students throughout the Tacoma School District. Through a partnership of Associated Ministries, Graduate! Tacoma, Communities in Schools Tacoma, and the College Success Foundation, a speed networking event was produced to help like-minded people, over short bursts of time, connect to share resources and arrange further conversation on how to partner for the benefit of students and the community.
This year Associated Ministries is co-hosting the event on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 from 4:30 – 6:30 pm at The Swiss. The event is free and we will be serving appetizers as community volunteers, nonprofits, businesses, public agencies and faith-based organizations come together with school district employees to share interests in a positive, comfortable and fun setting. Pre-registration is appreciated at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/connecting4students-tickets-30180801590?aff=erelexpmlt.
