This month’s meetup will feature the 2018 Round 1 Funded Project Showcase and an emerging model to better connect in-school and out-of-school time.

In March, more than 75 Hive members convened to reconnect, make new connections, and learn how to better understand and support immigrant and refugee communities from the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights.  Attendees were also treated to a fun (and competitive) Tinker Time using Mentimeter.  To access the slides from the March Meetup, click here.
