Posted on 02/06/2018
The Community Engagement Team is a multi-agency collaborative that reaches out to underserved Cambridge families and connects them to community events and resources, develops community leaders, and supports agencies in working with a diverse community. Three members of the Community Engagement Team are also G&P parents! Please keep your eyes out for these parents and the other CET workers at G&P events, they are incredible resources for the community!
