Summer Institute & Learning Community

2023 Summer Institute Participants


"Casa de Peregrinos participated last year, we sent two program staff and two management staff, and it is no exaggeration to say that the experience changed the way we do business, and gave us excellent tools to help our evaluation process (which was virtually non-existent before this course.)"
