We are continually working on updating the list of trainings we offer. If you need a training that is not listed, please complete the contact form on our website to help us prioritize which courses are needed for the family strengthening field.

How much does it cost to request a training specifically for my organization/network?

All of our trainings are free. Please fill out the Request a Training form in the Contact section of our website to request a specific training in your area. If you have at least 20 people to be trained, we can schedule the training with your staff. If you have less than that, we might be able to schedule a training in your area and open it to the public to fill the seats to reach our minimum.

Do you provide lunch or coffee?

Because our trainings are free, and our funding is through the State of California, we are not able to provide coffee or lunch. Our lunch breaks are schedules for an hour and in locations near restaurants, so that you may purchase food if you are not able to bring your own lunch.

Registration closes 8 days prior to each training so that we may prepare materials. If you need to cancel, please do so as soon as possible so we can let people in from the waitlist.
