Families Connected Program

We are offering a VIRTUAL modified version of our Families & Schools Together Program.

This modified version “Families Connected Program” is designed to build parent-child relationships, improve family communication and social supports through a variety of activities and resources.

Families will have the opportunity to engage in meaningful activities and discussions that are culturally relevant and age appropriate. Through “Parent Time” parents will have an opportunity to chat on specific issues and topics, share tips and challenges, and receive resources. Weekly topics include communication, conflict resolution and bullying, celebrating our differences, self and family care, and parenting.

How is the program structured? Each cycle has:

  • 4 Families
  • 2 Facilitators (from our Agency)
  • Meets virtually 1x per week for 5 weeks

How do families register?

  • Families can self-refer by sending an email indicating their interest in the Families Connected Program.
  • A facilitator will connect with them to do a Pre-Screen and Intake.

Additional details available in the program flyer.

Families & Schools Together Program

Families and Schools Together (F&ST) is an innovative, collaborative prevention and parent involvement program in which whole families gather at school and participate in specific, fun, research-based activities aimed at strengthening families, empowering parents and building healthy communities.

This eight-week program in the Region of Peel, is offered in elementary schools for children (ages 5 to 9) to support healthy child development. The whole family is invited to participate in fun activities that strengthen relationships with the family. Involvement of the school’s principal and teachers further builds the relationship between the family and school staff.
