SFP Facilitator Training for Virtual Adaptation.


The Athena Forum Calendar has listings of SFP 10-14 Readiness Primers and Virtual Adaptation Trainings through June 2021. 


Readiness Primers

It is recommended that you attend a one-hour SFP 10-14 Virtual Adaptation Readiness Primer before registering for the 9-hour virtual adaptation training. The readiness primer will provide an overview of the logistics, technology requirements, and resource handouts to help support your virtual delivery of SFP 10-14. Readiness Primer sessions will occur every Tuesday from 3-4 pm through the end of June. You can register for a session here.


Virtual Adaptation Trainings

We have added 2 options for training each month from February – June. Each month, there is the option of attending a 3-part (MWF) 3-hour training, or a 2-part (6 hour + 3 hour) training. You only need to complete one of the two training options (for a total of 9 hours). This training will dig deep into the delivery of SFP 10-14 using a virtual delivery platform (e.g. Zoom) by providing hands-on practice of the adaptations using technology, and help teams identify roles for program delivery (e.g. facilitators, tech personnel, family packets, meals, etc.). The adaptation training sessions are designed to help facilitators who have previously been trained and certified, and who have had experience with in-person delivery. Please let us know if you have support staff (e.g. tech personnel, assistants, volunteers, etc.) who will be part of your delivery team so we can prepare accordingly. 

Check Athena Forum Calendar for the schedule of Virtual Adaptations Trainings. 

Questions and comments, please email WSU SFP 10-14 Community of Practice (, or WSU SFP 10-14 Community of Practice and Evaluation Coordinator Sabrina DiGennaro ( 

We are excited to work with you to bring virtual SFP 10-14 adaptation programming to Washington communities. 


New Spanish language SFP classes will be offered in Spring 2021.

Stay tuned for registration and dates.

The Strengthening Families Program for Parents and Youth 10-14 Years (SFP) is a nationally recognized curriculum that provides parent, youth and family education. The model is designed to be delivered in local communities for groups of 7-12 families. Educational programs that bring parents and their children together in learning environments strengthen entire families.
