Academic Partnership


Academic courses have been tied to CBT and given opportunities to put theory to practice by implementing the tools they have learned to real life scenarios.  The experiences have been proven to be enlightening, educational, and beneficial to all participants.  If you are interested in your class collaborating with The Community Building Team on an initiative please contact, CBT Chairperson, TiRease Holmes at holmest@lasalle.edu
