Update from ALIGN E.D. December 12, 2018
This project has taken a life of its own. ALIGN has provided 3 train the trainer sessions over the last 6 months. We have trained over 150 people to train the FCS modules. To date there have been a total of 685 staff and 200 agency caregivers trained that we know of. We believe that many of the contract foster care programs are working on training their caregivers over the next few months. Thank you for the support and uptake in doing this work. We ask that you report who has been trained in your agencies to us so that in June we can report on the total numbers.
We are moving forward with the assumption that the trainers are making plans within their own agencies to train staff. Our offer of assistance stands, especially if you need an indigenous trainer. Please email or call Nicole firstname.lastname@example.org or 780.232.9199.
We have decided not to offer ALIGN session in January and February. Our contract goes until June and the funding is tight. We hope to run another session for whoever needs it later in the spring. If you are struggling getting the training in, or need help please call Nicole ad we want to ensure everyone has the opportunity to get it done. If we need to ask for more funding we will but need to know the need by March.
