Focused workshop tracks include:
21st Century Community Action
CAA leaders throughout Ohio worked with OACAA and CauseImpact to engage in zero-based planning to build better strategies to fight poverty. This track will guide you through a process that helps see past the limits, hurdles, and assumptions of your current situation to help you build strategies that move towards a cure for poverty.
CAPLAW is the national legal expert for the Community Action network. Through consultations, training and resources, the organization equips CAAs with the knowledge and tools to operate as accountable and effective change agents. CAPLAW also provides guidance to federal, state and national Community Action partners on legal and financial issues affecting CAAs.
This unique track will address issues CAAs have encountered specifically related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Early Childhood Education
A variety of youth-specific programs operated at Community Action Agencies across Ohio and America. This track is dedicated to program staff working with early childhood education programs such as Head Start and Early Head Start.
This track includes workshops covering pressing issues currently impacting CAA human resources departments throughout the network, including issues currently related to the pandemic.
Social Determinants of Health
Social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age and are mostly responsible for health inequities. This track will discuss the social processes that shaped these determinants and how CAAs can help achieve health equity.
