A Parent Advisory Committee is a leadership group of program participants that provides input, guidance and feedback to a program on a regular basis.  An active Parent Advisory Committee can be a highly effective method of supporting meaningful parent engagement, developing parent leadership skills and supporting a program’s success.

Yet many programs report struggling with managing Parent Advisory Committees.  This training was developed to address these challenges and maximize the potential of Parent Advisory Committees.  Whether programs are exploring setting up a new Parent Advisory Committee, or seeking to strengthen an existing one, this training will provide staff with strategies and tools.

National Summit on the Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening and Support

For more information, please visit the registration link.  

This is a unique opportunity to gather with colleagues from across the country to focus on quality practice with families through the implementation of the nationally-adopted Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support.

Based on the Principles of Family Support Practice and the Strengthening Families Framework and its research-based, evidence-informed 5 Protective Factors, the Standards have created a common language across different kinds of Family Strengthening and Family Support programs such as Family Resource Centers, home visiting programs and child development programs.  They are used as a tool for planning, providing and assessing quality practice by public departments, foundations, networks, community-based organizations and families.

This summit is an opportunity for national, state and local policymakers, public departments, Children’s Trust Fund directors, private funders, Network leaders, Family Support and Strengthening program directors, managers and direct service staff.
