April training options from the Alliance + website updates

April training options from the Alliance + website updates

In the two years since the CaRES program started, we have been listening and taking notes on what you need most as you take on the important work of caring for the children and families in your communities.  

Our new site helps you get to anything you need with just a click or two. Want to see all the available resources and events in your region, and learn who to contact if you need help? Just click on your county from the home page!  

That click will take you to your DCYF page, where you’ll see all your local happenings. For example, if you are in Region 4, you could join our Support Group in Seattle on April 18. You will also find the contact info for your local Mentor, who you can reach out to for advice and empathy. And we have a great new calendar feature that shows all our happenings in your area!  

A list of Alliance scheduled classes for April is below. Unless noted, classes are webinars. To register for courses, you need to create an account on the Alliance webpage – you can find instructions on how to do that here.

(note: classes that took place before this was posted on April 8 have been removed)

See the Alliance website for in-person support groups, drop-in sessions, and ongoing training opportunities, including CPR sessions.
