Background: Our online courses are informed by over a decade of work of the Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors approach, which is the first evidence-based program developed by and for Latino parents with children ages 0-5 – and adopted by diverse communities across the country. The program helps build parent leadership skills and knowledge to promote family wellbeing and positive outcomes for children by honoring family experiences, history and knowledge and supporting parents as powerful agents of change in the lives of their children and communities.
Online Course format: Our online courses include a self guided video presentation, and a live Zoom workshop hosted by the Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors national team. During the live Zoom participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and receive technical support from the national trainer and the AP/OD team.
Audience: Our courses will benefit anyone who works directly with families with children 0-5—including, early childhood educators, family educators, home visitors, child care providers, AP/OD certified facilitators and more.
