Who We Are

F&ST (Families and Schools Together) is an internationally acclaimed program that:

  • Provides evidence-based activities to support families
  • Builds positive connections between families and schools
  • Creates a supportive community to foster children’s well-being and education.

What We Do

The F&ST Program brings multiple families together once a week in dynamic after-school gatherings. In each session, a trained F&ST Team guides families through a structured agenda of activities that enhance parenting skills and reduce family stress while encouraging family bonding.

Advantages of the F&ST Program

The cumulative effects of F&ST can change the course of children’s lives. After a single 8-week F&ST Cycle, children show improvement with their emotions at home and at school. Parent-child bonding strengthens, academic performance improves, and children get along better with their parents and with their peers.

In short, F&ST applies research and evidence-based family therapy practices to promote the full potential of every child.

We have witnessed the empowerment and sense of relief associated with the formation of meaningful, lasting partnerships.
