Madres Planning Meetings
Quarterly strategic planning meetings with the mothers group of Washington Elementary and a collection of SCU faculty and staff focused on goals of the partnership.
On a quarterly basis key representatives from Santa Clara University from various academic departments, Centers, and offices meet with the group of mothers and fathers from Washington Elementary to discuss strategic components to the broader Thriving Neighbors Initiative. During the initial planning phases of TNI, these meetings were instrumental in establishing the vision and strategies that formed the foundation of the program offerings. As the program has grown these meetings have enabled key lines of communication to continue to develop between community partners and Santa Clara.
