About Partnership Trainings > Topics for Families

Training materials were developed by and for family members.

Training Topics

Each FREE training module is generally two hours in length. Resource materials are provided to each family free of charge, and all participants receive handouts and a certificate of completion for each presentation.

We offer Act 48 credits and some reimbursement, such as mileage and child care to families upon request.

All Partnership curricula are available in alternate formats upon request. Request for alternate formats should be made two weeks before the scheduled training.
