Texas Target Communities Training

About This Project

Texas Target Communities is a service learning outreach program of the College of Architecture and the Department of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning at Texas A&M University. TTC engages faculty and students working alongside local governments and community stakeholders to create sustainable communities across Texas, facilitating the transformation of communities from high risk/low opportunity to equitable, resilient, and adaptive by mitigating threats to the economy, environment, and culture. The XYZ Atlas team was lucky to participate in a training with TTC director Dr. John Cooper Jr, helping plan respectful and effective outreach strategies for Brazos Valley’s most vulnerable and underserved communities. The team will use their knowledge to collect stories and data about emotional well being in the community, engaging the community in collaborative artmaking and gathering data vital to placemaking, urban planning, and public health.
