The BC Association of Family Resource Programs (FRP-BC) provides educational/training opportunities to member agencies, participating families and volunteers. In 2009 FRP-BC developed the FRP Provincial Standards of Practice, along with additional resource/reference materials and works with members to ensure the implementation of the FRP Standards are met. The FRP Standards ensure that the delivery of the services within the Family Resource Program are high quality, comprehensive, and accessible to all families with children aged 0-6.
The BC Association of Family Resource Programs is currenlty developing Workshops for staff and volunteers and the Path to Learning pre-course project which is an Adult Boost Camp being developed through an Aboriginal lens and will include training and mentoring with the intent to enable learners to recognize and adjust to the rigors of post-secondary education and build confidence by dispelling fears of school.
The BC Parenting Centres Plan is a discussion paper and recognizes that services for families in BC are fragmented. The Discussion Paper includes a four year plan that would build on existing services to provide a cost effective continuum of support services for BC families with young children, particularly those with vulnerabilities.
