Strengthening Families Georgia Community Cafés are conversations among caregivers about what it takes to keep their families strong. Community Cafés can take place in early childhood centers or other friendly environments, and they’re a safe place to talk about the “hard stuff.”

Trained facilitators lead the discussion as caregiver participants explore questions that really matter—about taking care of yourself, raising strong children, and building strong relationships with your children. The Community Café model is based on the World Café model for engaging people in conversations that matter.

SFG’s Community Café Facilitator Training offers:

  • Techniques to facilitate Community Cafés to help families increase awareness and use of the five Protective Factors
  • An approach for engaging caregivers and families in conversations about themselves and their children
  • A method for building protective factors in families
  • An opportunity for developing parent leadership


No professional training background is needed. Participants are required to complete the “Bringing the Protective Factors Framework to Life In Your Work” training module prior to attending the Community Café Facilitator Training. Participants are expected to conduct two Community Cafés within a year of attending the training.

Virtual Training: November 29, 2023 from 9am to 3pm
