Foster Parent College website
This organization offers courses via internet on a wide array of topics that are beneficial to foster, kin, and adoptive families. Topics addressed include behavioral issues, educational needs, and how to help children and youth move forward in their relationships and work toward new goals.
Upon viewing these courses, which last approximately 40 minutes on average, and answering some questions about what you’ve seen, you will receive a certificate of completion. You can then give a copy of this certificate to your resource coordinator in order to receive training credit.
If you are interested in learning via these courses, please talk with your DCF/Family Services Resource Coordinator who can assign you FREE units to take a course. Even if you don’t have access to a computer at home, you may be able to view these courses at your local library or at a DCF office. You can view a comprehensive list of the courses available at www.fosterparentcollege.com.
