It is the mission of ICOSA to facilitate dynamic cooperation, partnerships and assistance among individuals, businesses, communities, governmental bodies and educational organizations to help foster growth and change. Through the sharing of collaboratively-based stories as well as highlighting the “connectors” within those stories and within the community, our hope is that our readers are moved to begin to work together to address and solve a given problem. We also look to students to learn how to work more collaboratively and to make a difference – both professionally and personally – by using these stories to track movement of community members and “connectors” in action.
The title ICOSA is an analogy for great connections and collaboration. An icosahedron, the strongest of the polygons, combines 20 equilateral triangular faces. We use this analogy because we believe that if we all work together and collaborate, we too can become stronger – just like the triangles.

Articles, videos, pictures, and post suggestions should be submitted to JanM@icosamag.com. Items not sent electronically will not be returned.
