Meet Yourself Sessions
After studying a variety of strategies for sharing information among and between agencies, the Info Hub Working Group resolved to create opportunities where service providers could meet face to face and build the trust so essential to community work. Held throughout the region, Meet Yourself sessions feature short “lightning round” talks from organizational leaders followed by table conversation and networking. Lightning round speakers have addressed topics like kindergarten readiness, enrichment activities, trauma-informed care, nutrition, special education, and healthcare.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Meet Yourself Sessions have been held virtually and focused on topics like virtual learning and mental health for both children and their caregivers. Recordings of these sessions can be found on the First Steps Resources Page.
