Greetings from the Berea College Partners for Education office of Family Partnership. I am L. Rochelle Garrett, the director of the Family Partnership programs. We are so excited to have this chance to share information here about our family focused programs that you can expect to take place in your community. Some of you may already know about our programs, like Families and Schools Together (also known as F.A.S.T.), Governor’s Commonwealth Institute for Parent Leadership (GCIPL), and our family information and empowerment workshops where you can earn stipends for your participation. We will also have Grace McKenzie introduce herself, as our Associate Director, and share some information about our community tax preparation sites.

Parents, Grandparents, Guardians, Foster families, Relatives raising relatives, everyone that is Family to the child in our cohort are invited to participate in our programs! You can learn more about them by contacting the family Engagement Specialists in your child’s school.

Keep watching this page for more updates, and programs as they launch. Feel free to submit questions or explore the resources we have listed on our page. Welcome to Family Partnership! We are glad to be on your team!!!
