Strengthening Families Program

The Strengthening Families Program for Parents and Youth 10-14 is a nationally recognized curriculum that provides parent, youth, and family education. The model is designed to be delivered in local communities for groups of 7-12 families. Educational programs that bring parents and their children together in learning environments strengthen entire families.

WSU Extension faculty and staff have provided facilitation, training, evaluation and technical assistance for Strengthening Family programs in Washington state since 2002.
