Family Engagement Meeting Facilitators Learning Exchanges

About the FEM Facilitator Learning Exchange

Family engagement meetings (FEMs) are more than a task to check off of the list, more than a tool to pull off the shelf as an option when trouble is brewing. FEMs are a way of life for child welfare practice—a values-driven practice inherent in supporting and guiding families to coalesce around their children and partner with the agency in establishing a plan for safety, permanency, and well-being of children and youth.

FEM Facilitator Learning Exchanges are 90-minute topic-focused learning sessions, held ten times a year, that bring learners together in a safe space to share successes, challenges, questions, and practice ideas with other facilitators from across the state. These sessions epitomize the saying “In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn.”

Over the course of these virtual sessions, you will learn from others and share your knowledge and experience about common FEM facilitation topics. Come as often as you can to deepen your skills in facilitating family engagement meetings!
