About the Training

Does your state have an effective process to collect and use data that shows the impact of the great work being done by your CILs and SILC? If not, you’ll want to complete this training. We’ll show you how you can move beyond data collection as a chore to put data to work for you. It takes a concerted, statewide effort to do it right, but once a process is developed, your state will have all of the information you need to create effective talking points, testimonies, reports, and other materials to clearly communicate the value of IL to legislators, funders, and other key players.
