We are committed to having transformative conversations, whether on a webinar or in a training. Join us at one of the opportunities below.



Our Parent Café Success Exchange Webinars are an opportunity for members of our Be Strong Families Café Community of Practice to come together to learn from each other and continue improving their skills and building their Café efforts. We introduce you to our latest Café resources, bring guest speakers to provide perspective on tricky topics, and invite Community of Practice members to share their stories.


New 2019-2020 Webinars Coming Soon!
