This workshop will teach you how to implement the Family and Community Development and Engagement Reflection Tool. This Tool is designed as a framework for organizations to assess how they integrate family support and community development principles into their organization’s culture, programs and practices. This workshop is tailored to administrators, directors and supervisors of schools and community organizations and parent leaders. To maximize the effectiveness of this experience, organizations are encouraged to send teams of individuals, and strongly encouraged to attend both sessions.
Strong families are core to the development of healthy children, youth, schools and communities. Clearly, there is a growing need to explore new and effective practices to foster meaningful collaborations between families, schools, and communities that capitalize on the strengths and resources of each. This workshop will focus on key elements of family engagement and concrete ways to build organizational cultures to effectively engage families.
