Strengthening Families Maryland Parent Café Conference: Thrive!

This event has passed.

Families already have the most important thing they need – love.  Through Parent Cafés, parents can build other key factors that can help their families thrive. Join us for a Strengthening Families Maryland Parent Café Conference to learn more about interactive Parent Cafés or to help your Parent Cafés thrive!

Parent Cafés are peer-to-peer opportunities for parents of children birth through age five to come together and talk about topics that can help to keep their families strong.  An effective family engagement tool, Parent Cafés provide structured opportunities for parents to connect with other parents while fostering parent involvement and parent leadership.

This FREE one day Strengthening Families Maryland Parent Café Conference is for you if you are:

  • A trained Parent Café Facilitator who provides Parent Cafés:  Participate in sessions for experienced Facilitators, such as recruitment and retention and providing Cafés for specific audiences.
  • A trained Parent Café Facilitator who is not currently providing (or never has) Parent Cafés:  Participate in a Facilitator refresher and other sessions for Facilitators, such as providing Parent Cafés for dual language groups or fresh ways to present the Protective Factors.
  • Interested in learning about Parent Cafes:  Participate in a Parent Café and learn more about how they help families build protective factors.
  • A parent whose family is involved with an organization offering, or planning to offer, Parent Cafés:  Participate in a Parent Café, Table Host training, or other sessions for experienced planning team members.
