Cultural Learning Communities

A learning community is an affinity group made up of individuals and groups that have a common interest in a particular subject. The networking facilitates peer mentoring, issue development, resource gathering, best practice sharing, strategy development, and a variety of other mutually assisting activities that promote and improve access, availability, quality, and outcomes for the populations we serve.

Each Cultural Learning Community is co-facilitated by a TAP staff member, contractor and/or at least one community member. The Cultural Learning Community co-facilitators arrange for conference calls at least every other month and coordinate activities. The Cultural Learning Communities convene through conference calls, email distribution lists, the CLC-COP listserv, and face-to-face meetings when possible
