Abriendo Puertas Opening Doors

In the AP/OD Online 3rd Edition Program Acquisition Institute, participants will learn how to provide the curriculum directly to parents/families with children 0-5. This dynamic training will cover AP/OD best practices in the following topics:

  • Popular education methodology and approach including adult learning methodology and facilitator skills
  • Using culturally relevant activities to develop parent leadership
  • Overview of curriculum and session formats
  • Developing community partnerships and constructing a local resource kit, including using local education and health data as discussion tools
  • Program implementation strategies including start-up recommendations, parent recruitment, retention, and integrating the AP/OD program into the local partners’ organizational structures including:
    • Creating a welcoming environment for parent training
    • Strengths-based/asset-based perspective for working with parents and families

NEWLY INTEGRATED: Newly developed training material that includes access and guidance for our new online course Effective Practices for Facilitating the AP/OD Program Virtually. The course includes an additional video presentation of AP/OD sessions being facilitated virtually and access to the newly developed facilitator guides and customizable PowerPoints in English and Spanish for each session of the curriculum (sessions 1-10 + a bonus orientation session). This course is designed to help guide and support the virtual implementation of the program.

The goal is for all participants in the AP/OD Training Institute to strengthen their skills to work with families and be prepared and motivated to implement the AP/OD program in their local communities.

TRAINING FORMAT: The online training will be facilitated in English. Participants will have 2 weeks to complete the 17-hr certification. Approximately half of the training will consist of self-paced online learning assignments. The other half will consist of 6 live workshops via Zoom where participants will interact with the cohort and the master trainer.
