Take the first step to becoming a CASA advocate:


CFE: Courageous Connections Training, Session 2 (Two-Part, Virtual Training Series)

You’re invited to Texas CASA’s fall expansion training for CFE. This training will include the 10 new areas they are onboarding with CFE this fall and is also open statewide for anyone and everyone wanting a refresher on CFE, or any new staff/volunteers who may need to learn about CFE for the first time.

The training is two parts and folks will need to sign up for a session 1 date in October and a session 2 date in November. The invite blow has hyperlinks to register for the training as well as to complete the e-learning, which is a pre-requisite.

We are excited to be bringing Collaborative Family Engagement (CFE) to your area this fall, and invite you to join us for a two-part virtual training series, CFE: Courageous Connections. CASA, Child Protective Services and Community Based Care staff will come together to learn about the fundamentals of CFE and have the opportunity for practical, hands-on application of the skills and tools presented.

The training will be a two-part training series, and each session will be three hours long.  Please sign-up for one date for Session 1 in October and one date for Session 2 in November.  You can view the dates and times, and register for your chosen sessions (don’t forget to sign up for a Session 1 and a Session 2) here.

Session 1 Dates:
• October 22, 2021 9:00am – 12:00pm CT
• October 25, 2021 1:00pm – 4:00pm CT
• October 28, 2021 9:00am – 12:00pm CT

Session 2 Dates:
• November 3, 2021 9:00am – 12:00pm CT
• November 4, 2021 1:00pm – 4:00 pm CT
• November 9, 2021 9:00am – 12:00pm CT

Please forward this invitation and save the date to your staff, volunteers, and anyone else that you would like to attend the training, remembering we have allocated approximately 50 spots per area total, to be shared amongst CASA and CPS/SSCC. As CFE is all about connections and community, all training sessions will be open to others from across the state, so please note you may be training with people outside of your area.  😊

Lastly, as a prerequisite before Session 1, we are asking everyone to complete the 2.5-hour CFE E-Learning, which can be done at the learner’s pace.

If you have any questions about training or CFE, please reach out to your CFE Coach or the CFE Team at cfeteam@texascasa.org; and we look forward to seeing you in October.
