Family Development is excited to announce the 2016 Virtual Learning Event (VLE). This year, we will be offering a four-part VLE that focuses on Strengthening the Family CORE.

We recognize the unique challenges that military families face, but we also recognize their inherent ability to rise to the challenge. These four 90-minute sessions have been designed to equip military service providers with tools to join with these families in an effort to continue their path of resilience. It is our hope that these sessions will enhance your knowledge, strengthen your skills as a service provider, and guide your work with these amazing families.

Let’s connect, discover, and share!
We’d love to hear your feedback about our VLE. Please join us for our Q&A sessions on LinkedIn! We would love to have a conversation with you about your experience with military families, building resiliency and Strengthening the Family CORE!
