Renew(ALL) 2024 and Beyond

Big Thought and the City of Learning continue to evolve.  Our renewal for 2024 includes new faces on our team, new program opportunities and a renewed focus on defining how we collectively help build skills in our youth to help them  live their best lives.

A new but familiar face, Kristina Cola (formerly Dove) joins us as the new Sr. Manager of Learning Systems. She adds this title to her New Business Opportunities role.  We also welcome Mr. Dae’Quan Brown as the new Partner Navigator. If you are a partner and/or program provider and have questions about opportunities to host your programming, please email him at [email protected]. If you are part of the Learning Partners initiative, your contact is still Ms. Laura Orange.  For any questions on how to use or access your Dallas City of Learning profile or submit programs, and/or Enrollment-Attendance data, please email [email protected].

There will be new opportunities for our program providers to bring their creative, out-of-school time programming to learners in Dallas and parts of Tarrant counties. Program providers will have access to professional learning to help capture and further develop quality programing. Big Thought will strive to increase access for learners and their families to out of school learning opportunities. Big Thought will continue to collect and provide actionable data and insights for our partners and program providers that participate in our data initiatives.

We invite you to subscribe to our Events calendar and make sure your contact information is up to date, so you don’t miss out on any invitations and/or announcements.
