Across the United States and in more than 20 countries around the world, FAST® has created far-reaching, positive changes for children, families, schools, and entire communities.

One key to FAST’s global success is the program’s universal values – especially the belief that all parents love their children and want the very best for them. Respect and empowerment for parents is woven into every aspect of the FAST Program.

Another important contributor to the program’s far-reaching impact is its adaptability to local circumstances: up to 60% of FAST programming can and should be adapted to suit the needs and priorities of the community. In addition, the teams who run FAST Programs at the local level must reflect the culture, ethnicity, language, gender balance, and social class of the families being served.

“Families are getting closer to us. They are inside the school now – something that didn’t happen before.”

–School Principal on FAST in Tremembé, São Paulo, Brazil. Read more about FAST in Brazil on our blog.

Just as families benefit from strong relationships that help them thrive, Families & Schools Together values our relationships with partner organizations. These worldwide collaborations bring together diverse groups with expertise in many disciplines to study the impact of the FAST Program, explore new ways to help more families, and support innovative initiatives that improve the well-being of children. The organizations listed below currently run FAST programming.
