Targeted training opportunities are offered quarterly to build the skills, knowledge and attitudes of participants through professional training and skill building activities. Participants include current and graduate Community Fellows, staff from programs funded by DEPC, staff from other human service organizations, DEPC volunteers and parents.

The goals of the training are to increase collaboration between community leaders and the programs and organizations serving children and families; and engage and connect families to DEPC and other community programs, services and initiatives.

Quarterly trainings are based on the needs of DEPC programs and the needs and interests of the community members. Participants are offered a menu of training options to choose from such as child health, early childhood education, child literacy, and family support programs.
