From Islands of Innovation to 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. ~Ettiene Wenger

The PROS Curriculum Clearinghouse is a virtual resource center for practitioners, administrators, educators, content experts and people enrolled in PROS programs to develop and share curriculum.

Our hope is to create an unparalleled opportunity for people to share their unique capabilities with creating and delivering recovery-oriented, person-centered and culturally-competent curriculum in PROS programs.
