Communities of Practice

Communities of practice are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.

The CFI works with the Virginia Department of Education and the Virginia Department of Health to co-facilitate several communities of practice that bring together families, family-led organizations, schools, state and local government agencies, health care providers, universities, and military programs.
