January 2021 CBCAP PLC: Radical Family Engagement

This month’s CBCAP Peer Learning Call explores what it means to radically engage families in your programs. A representative from the Administration for Children and Families Office of Early Child Development will discuss their recent efforts to answer the question, “What do parents need and what do they do?” as well as an initiative to bring together families from across the country to discuss their needs and engagement with practitioners related to their children’s early learning.  CBCAP Leads will also have the opportunity to learn more about FRIENDS resources designed to support parent/practitioner collaboration and family engagement.
