Developing and Sustaining Effective Parent Advisory Committees (This event begins on June 10, 2021)
June 11 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm PDTFREE
June 10-11, 9:00AM – 2:30PM PDT
A Parent Advisory Committee is leadership group comprised of Program participants who provide input, guidance, and feedback on a regular basis. An active Parent Advisory Committee can effectively support meaningful parent engagement and Program success, as well as develop parent leadership skills, yet many Programs struggle with managing this type of committee. Funders often expect Programs to have a Parent Advisory Committee, yet less frequently ensure Programs have training and implementation support. Further, parents serving on these committees sometimes feel their participation and contributions are not useful or valued. Whether Programs seek to establish a new Parent Advisory Committee or to strengthen an existing one, this two-day NFSN training will address common challenges and provide staff with the strategies and tools necessary for success.
- Participating organizations are asked to register two staff: 1 in a leadership role and 1 a direct service role
- Due to the size of this training, registration will be limited to teams from CALIFORNIA until May 18. Any remaining seats will be opened for general registration at that time. Please contact us if you have questions or wish to be placed on a waitlist.
