Grassroots St. Vrain had the pleasure of presenting a work session on Community Organizing and Training at the Great Futures Statewide Education Action Conference on April 27. Laura McDonald, GSV President, presented to education leaders and stakeholders from across the state. Grassroots St. Vrain presented the history of GSV and how it has grown to where the group is today. John Poynton, Communications Director for SVVSD, presented with Laura, showing the importance of effective working relationships between Districts and stakeholders. John shared information about Leadership St. Vrain and how this group educates its members, motivates them and ultimately empowers them.
The goal of the Grassroots St. Vrain presentation was successful in providing an example of how individuals and groups may organize in their communities and create successful outreach.
