EDC develops practitioner-informed professional development and resources that build professional and organizational capacities. We engage educators, health providers, and community agency staff in communities of practice that reflect current findings on effective strategies to support adult learning and systems improvements.

We develop and deliver training and technical assistance to frontline staff in classrooms, clinics, and communities that support their use of evidence-based practices to enhance services. We also build policymakers’ capacity to collect, analyze, and use data to guide decision-making.
