The statewide California Healthy Marriage Coalition Spring 2007 Training
Calendar is now available on their website. This "training showcase" is a
WONDERFUL idea that I hope many of you will imitate in your region. Thanks
again to the California folks for their pioneering work and their generosity
in sharing their ideas. - diane
> Our latest Training Calendar reflects two significant innovations:
> 1) Because many organizations dedicated to Healthy Marriages are not familiar
> with the key Marriage Education (ME) curricula, CHMC Staff will conduct 2
> Curriculum Overview workshops to provide an introduction to 14 ME Courses that
> have received ACF approval for implementation through CHMC's Healthy Marriage
> Demonstration Grant. These FREE workshops will acquaint members of your
> organization with these key curricula, their characteristics, benefits, mode
> of delivery, costs--so that you will be able to decide which ones best fit
> your needs. We strongly encourage you to set a target of bringing 10+ members
> of your coalition to the Overview nearest you on APRIL 9 in Santa Ana or 11 in
> Sacramento, 9am-5pm. Advance registration is required and space is limited.
> For a list of the 14 courses included in the overview and to register, visit:
> Note that CHMC plans to offer another Curriculum Overview Workshop in the
> Fall, to include additional curricula not being reviewed this Spring.
> 2) After your coalition members attend the Overview Workshop and make your
> selections, CHMC will schedule Train-the-Trainer (TTT) workshops when and
> where you wish them. In other words, we will come to your location and train
> course instructors who will then be able to present the courses to
> couples/singles/youth in your area.
> To schedule a "sponsored TTT workshop" you must 1) commit to having 20 or more
> people in your coalition interested in being trained to teach a certain
> curriculum; 2) you must provide the venue; and 3) in addition to the people
> attending from your coalition/organization, you must make the workshop open to
> other interested persons (up to max. capacity). CHMC will provide the Trainer
> of Trainers (at no charge to you). Workshop participants will pay for their
> materials (prices vary , unless these are being paid for through your
> coalition funds. So, for example, if you wish to implement Bringing Baby Home
> or Mastering the Magic of Love, let us know and we'll work out a date and
> arrange for a qualified Trainer of Trainers to come to you.
> Please note: You do not need to be an official Partnering Organization
> of CHMC to sponsor a TTT workshop. This option is open for any organization
> in California wishing to have persons trained in the approved ME curricula.
> Make sure you bring a big group to the Curricula Overview workshop on April
> 9 or April 11 to help you make an informed decision on which curricula will
> work best for the people served in your community effort.
