NAFSCE pairs nationally recognized experts with practitioners to present breakthrough information that summarizes recent research and share effective practices.  We hope you’ll join us for one of our February programs. If you missed our January Capacity Building Webinar, please see below for links to the presentation slides and video recording of the session.

Tuesday, February 7, 2pm ET
MEMBERS-ONLY Community of Practice Online Meeting

NAFSCE members will be the first to hear about a new online community being launched by Dr. Joni Samples, Chief Academic Officer of Family Friendly Schools. Dr. Samples is a sought-after presenter, trainer, author and publisher in the field of family engagement.

After Dr. Sample’s remarks, there will be plenty of time for general discussion. Share some of your own best practices or ask your colleagues for assistance on a sticky issue. It’s like open mic night (well, afternoon) for NAFSCE members.

If you are not yet a NAFSCE member but would like to attend this session, please email Keami Harris, Director of Capacity Building Programs at harrisk@nafsce.org or call (703) 739-1358.

Sharing Effective Practices Online Meeting (Open to All)

NAFSCE’s featured program for February will focus on Fatherhood Initiatives. Research shows that children with involved, loving fathers are significantly more likely to do well in school, have healthy self-esteem, and exhibit positive social behaviors compared to children with uninvolved fathers. Join us as we learn about some of the most effective fatherhood programs at work in the field today. Share what you’re doing in your own community and find out what’s working for your colleagues across the country. This interactive session will have plenty of time for dialogue among participants. Register today!

Featured Presenter: Kenneth Braswell, Executive DirectorFathers Incorporated.

With more than 25 years of community development experience, Kenneth Braswell is the Executive Director of Fathers incorporated, a not-for-profit organization that serves as a leader in the promotion of Responsible Fatherhood.
