What are Community Conversations?

WMHT's Community Conversations are localized, small-group discussions where participants identify what they want for their community, what needs to change to reach those goals, and the challenges they face in moving change forward. WMHT’s role as co-facilitator is to assist with developing opportunities for this type of dialogue to occur and to better serve our evolving communities by informing our work with the diverse viewpoints, aspirations, and challenges that are shared.
For more information about community conversations, contact the WMHT Education Department or call (518) 880-3400.
