It’s impressive what can happen when great minds come together! On October 10, 2013, about two dozen afterschool practitioners and leaders collaborated during the Y4Y Coffee Break webinar to share their ideas and co-develop a template for a family guidebook. The starting point was a Y4Y resource, the Creating a Family Guidebook tool. This tool guides programs in creating a guidebook to share with their students’ families.
The group worked with the Y4Y team, right there on the webinar screen, to customize this tool and develop a more complete outline for the final document. Now, the product of their hard work is available to everyone! Download the new Family Guidebook Template today from Y4Y’s Promising Practices Gallery and customize it further to fit the exact needs of your program. You can add, delete, and change anything you want in the template , then fill it in with your program policies, program characteristics, family involvement practices, etc.
