Professional Development

Arizona TASH hosts an Annual Institute that provides stakeholders with additional knowledge and resources to bring back to their community in their quest to provide inclusive environments for all.

Every institute includes a future leader strand, TASH YOUth, that provides the opportunity for middle school and high school students to learn how to impact their communities.

Each year two awards are presented to acknowledge individuals that have made a difference in their community.
