Learning Collective

The main focus of CSHF’s 2019 evaluation effort will be the piloting of a “Learning Collective.” This CSHF 2019 Learning Collective is a professional learning community that will focus on culture of learning. The 2018 evaluation work explored and highlighted the importance of building and growing a culture of learning as a means to embrace and integrate evidence-based practice, adapt to change, strengthen organizational stability and sustainability, and have greater community impact.

Up to 10 health-related organizations are eligible to participate. All must work in El Paso or Teller Counties. Applicants do not need to be a current or former CSHF funded partner, and organizations of all sizes and ages are welcome to apply.

An application is required, and will be available by May 16. Applications are due by noon on June 10.


Selection will occur by the end of June and the Learning Collective will begin in late August, finishing in December 2019.

Participation requirements are significant, and have been designed based on key success factors from similar efforts. The Learning Collective will require a minimum of 84 hours per organization, two consistent participants, and participation from the executive director and development director. Organizations that fully participate in the Learning Collective will receive a $3,400 grant in recognition of their investment and commitment to the work.
