The Umoja Community Education Foundation is excited to welcome all Umoja Coordinators and Co-coordinators to attend our Annual Winter Retreat. The Winter Retreat is a convening of the Umoja community coordinators to set the tone for the year and collaborate and share strategies with other Umoja practitioners. With the growth of our team and the innovative leadership of our Executive Director, we are moving towards reimagining the winter retreat experience. We are working diligently to plan a powerful week of learning and planning. This year the Winter Retreat will be held at the CATAMARAN RESORT HOTEL  from January 8-10, 2020. If you have any questions regarding the 2020 Winter Retreat, please email or call us via phone: (916) 661-6455.


Registration: THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS DECEMBER 13, 2019! Registration is complimentary for the primary Umoja Coordinator(s). All registered participants will receive paid registration, two nights hotel accommodations*, and meals as listed in the pending agenda. The registration link has been sent to Umoja Coordinators.


Who can attend: All primary coordinators are invited to the Winter Retreat. Invitations have been sent via Eventbrite. We understand that many of our programs have adopted a village culture where many practitioners partner to serve our students. Due to space and capacity, the Summer Learning Institute is meant to engage the entire support community. The Winter Retreat will focus on the primary coordinator only.
