The TWC! (Together We Can!) project will kick off with healthy relationships training - February 16 (1 p.m.) to February. 18 (12 p.m.) at Rock Springs 4-H Center (just south of Junction City). We welcome you to participate!!

The TWC! project is intended to support healthy relationships training implementation in up-to ten communities through collaborations between Extension and local groups such as Circles or other programs that address family poverty.

Those participating in TWC! will receive:

  • Training (February 16, 17, 18) in the national, evidence-based "Elevate!" couple strengthening curriculum and Michigan State Extension's "Together We Can" single parenting curriculum.
  • Community awareness resources such as the video "Poor Kids" from PBS, and Ohio State Extension's "Tough Work."
  • A mini-grant of $200 to support local implementation.
  • Evaluation support (via K-State Family Studies and Human Services students) and marketing of your work.

REGISTRATION DETAILS: In order to secure your spot, we are charging a non-refundable fee of $20 per person. Send your confirmation email to Elaine Johannes, ejohanne@ksu.edu; or Adam Cless, acless@ksu.edu.
