Peer Learning Communities


Join other professionals to learn and grow as a leader in a supportive peer community.

Peer Learning Communities (PLCs) are designed to allow participants to dive deeply into various themes and functional areas over the course of the school year. In monthly sessions, participants will convene with one of our expert facilitators to share their experiences and raise problems of practice with peers in order to illuminate potential solutions.

PLCs are held monthly for 2.5 hours during business hours from October through May. If you are interested in signing up for a 2018-2019 PLC, please reach out to info@edfuel.org.

The PLCs listed below will be offered in the 2018-2019 school year in Washington DC. Group discounts and limited scholarships are available, and there are opportunities to host PLCs in other cities if a large enough group of participants is interested. In addition, EdFuel also offers Internal PLCs, which consist of a group of staff members at one organization. Please contact info@edfuel.org for more information about any of our PLC offerings.
