Community Roundtable Webinars

Community Roundtable

How can our community best support children, students and families this fall?

If you’re wondering how you’re going to manage education, employment, and childcare this fall, please join us for a virtual Community Roundtable. Local leaders from the school district, local government, business, public health, mental health, and childcare will share up-to-date information and address community concerns.

We are pleased to share recordings of August's virtual Community Roundtable events in Dayton & Waitsburg, Milton-Freewater, Touchet, and College Place & Walla Walla. The intent of the Roundtable events was to share critical information, address questions from the community, and lay the groundwork for collaborative action as we head into the fall and a great deal of uncertainty. Please note, the information shared in these recordings is subject to change as our communities continue to respond to COVID-19.

A project of the Educational Attainment Alliance, facilitated by United Way of the Blue Mountains and Community Council.
