Training & Technical Assistance Initiative Workshops

The CJII TTA Initiative emphasizes the importance of a participatory approach to identifying and delivering TTA needs; evaluation of the impact of the TTA investment initiative over time; developing strong relationships with and between CJII grantees; adopting a trauma-informed approach to all TTA offered; and providing expert support through multiple modalities, in order to be responsive to the needs of each grantee. Across the TTA Initiative, the Consortium aims to support CJII grantees as they deliver innovative, high-impact programs.

As part of the TTA Initiative, CJII offers an ongoing program of workshops on key programmatic areas. These workshops are open to any staff from a CJII grantee organization, not only the CJII-funded program within the organization.

After postponing all workshops due to Covid-19, we are thrilled to be offering a new program of virtual sessions in the Fall of 2020. All workshops will be offered online, with Zoom information provided to attendees in advance. Registration for each session and any program updates will be made available on a rolling basis.

Below are the upcoming TTA workshops scheduled to date.
