Over the past two years, North Chicago Community Partners has been invited to present at the annual Illinois Federation for Community Schools Conference. “The Federation for Community Schools is a member coalition that works to preserve, promote and sustain community schools, which achieves the organization’s vision, across the nation through policy changes, professional development, and programmatic advancements.”

In April 2016, NCCP had the pleasure of traveling to Albuquerque, NM to attend and present at The Coalition For Community Schools’ bi-annual National Forum. This year’s theme, “Rising Together: Learning Across School, Family and Community.” “The Coalition for Community Schools, housed at the Institute for Educational Leadership, is an alliance of national, state and local organizations in education K-16, youth development, community planning and development, family support, health and human services, government and philanthropy as well as national, state and local community school networks.”
