About the Pathways 2 Training

What are Ontario families saying about Pathways 2? 

  • "Pathways' curriculum was excellent - more parents, early on in their parenting journey, need to benefit from it."
  • "Pathways training has given me the tools to understand my child."
  • "Life-changing skills learned. Wonderful connections made with new friends."

Pathways to Permanence 2 is a 24-hour specialized series of classes designed for foster and adoptive parents, kinship caregivers, and guardians who are parenting children who have experienced trauma and loss as a part of their history.

The course provides tools, techniques and information that empower participants to effectively parent their children.
