Membership and Structure
The TA and Training Team is made up of 1) community members, including system partners, families and youth interested in educating the community about System of Care and 2) System of Care Administrative staff. Members should also feel comfortable presenting in front of small groups.
Estimated Time Commitment
This is an ongoing workgroup. The group meets at least monthly for about two hours (but more frequently if needed) and also completes some work behind the scenes and as part of other teams and workgroups (estimated to take two to three hours a month).
