Speaker: Frank Rene Lopez, Executive Director, NGAGE NM
This presentation will discuss how to make change happen by harnessing the power of collective impact. In Dona Ana County, our children and students often struggle in school for many reasons – including a lack of financial resources and limited human capacity. NGAGE New Mexico serves as a backbone organization for a county wide education initiative. The idea of transforming our community by re-thinking education is possible when community works together. When leaders and organizations are willing to “trust” each other and communicate – amazing things are possible. This presentation will include NGAGE work in early childhood education and community schools.
