Community of Practice

The UCITY Family Zone Education Community of Practice (CoP) aims to unite and engage UCITY Family Zone residents and organizations with a common interest in promoting equitable educational attainment and enrichment opportunities among UCITY Family Zone communities. The Education CoP meets every month to engage in discussions, learning, and community-based activities centered around place-based solutions for collaboratively addressing systemic barriers to equitable education and quality of life outcomes in the UCITY Family Zone.  It is our goal that through this practice, we will create lasting relationships, measurable results, and contribute to improving literacy, educational attainment, and quality education, and enrichment access among UCITY Family Zone communities.
