Nurturing the inherent potential of every child by uniting families, schools, and communities
Together, we can build stronger families.
For Children & Families
The FAST® Program is an internationally acclaimed family engagement program that empowers parents and supports the relationship-building necessary for children to thrive. By applying research and evidence-based family therapy practices, this program promotes the full potential of every child.
For Schools & Educators
The FAST® Institute of Family Engagement trains school staff to partner with families in support of children’s education and well-being. By blending best practices in teacher training and family and community engagement, sessions help schools create a welcoming environment for all families.
For Providers & Trainers
The FAST Office provides implementation support, technical assistant, evaluation services and processing, resources, and events for our partners, including an annual training conference. Online resources are also continually being developed to streamline the program experience.
FAST was one of the first prevention and early intervention programs to develop practical applications for adult and children’s mental health research findings. Today, our organization continues to evolve and improve our work in family engagement by integrating new scientific findings and research into our programs. LEARN MORE →
