New for 2014!

We’ve decided to focus on offering more workshops rather than hosting additional Chautauquas. That means we have also changed the Focus 2020 graduation requirements! To be a Focus 2020 graduate and become eligible for a Community Action Grant, you are now only required to attend four Focus 2020 Workshops.

For those who have already attended a Chautauqua, you can now count your attendance as one workshop which means you would only be required to attend three additional workshops to become a Focus 2020 graduate.

You may be wondering…what exactly is a “Chautauqua”?

A Chautauqua was an education movement in the United States, extremely popular in the late 19th & early 20th centuries. The Chautauqua brought entertainment & culture for the whole community, with speakers, teachers, musicians, entertainers, preachers, and specialists of the day.
