What is Keep Connected

This virtual workshop, designed for teams of two or more, will teach you how to bring the Keep Connected Family Program to your community, school or program - and give you the tools for success!

This online training-of-facilitators opportunity prepares leaders in schools, youth-serving organizations, and community organizations to organize and facilitate the Keep Connected workshop with parenting adults and middle school youth.

The Keep Connected Institute prepares teams of co-facilitators to offer Keep Connected to families in your school, organization, or community. The program is designed for two facilitators—one to lead youth sessions while the other leads the sessions with parenting adults.

What will you learn? 
  • Learn how to organize, plan, and facilitate the parent, youth, and family workshops.
  • Have clarity on the time and resources needed to implement Keep Connected effectively.
  • Discover the research-based framework for strengthening relationships that young people need to learn, grow, and thrive.
  • Understand the goals, purpose, structure, and style of Keep Connected.
  • Get an introduction to the six-session, interactive workshop series that strengthens parent-youth relationships.
  • Receive the curriculum, guidebook, and handouts with the tools to lead the sessions, in English and Spanish.
  • Get access to a full library of online tools and resources, including facilitator materials, strategies for recruitment and retention, effective facilitation guides, promotion tools and resources (press releases, email template, social media templates, videos, etc.)

What is the time commitment?
  • Initial training (10 hours) - Monday 2/28 - Friday 3/4, 10AM-12PM
  • Host at least two 12-hour trainings for families in your school community in 2022.  Scheduling is flexible based on your availability.  Event can be 2 hours/week for 6 weeks, or two consecutive 6-hour Saturdays, for example.  
  • You'll work in partnership with your school district, and have planning and logistics support from Public Health & Social Services as needed
