Parent University Instructors Receive Training for Classes that Begin in September


The Office of Community and Economic Development (OCED) at Fresno State via its initiative, San Joaquin Valley Rural Development Center, engages parents and community members from the San Joaquin Valley in Fresno State's Parent University program. Parent University facilitates economic growth through various comprehensive courses and technical assistance workshops that are taught on campus and/or at several community sites throughout the San Joaquin Valley.

This month, Fresno State Parent University trained the first round of instructors who will begin teaching Digital Literacy classes in September 2019. The instructors attended two days of intensive curriculum training, as well as a day of Financial Capability training in order to prepare for Parent University Digital Literacy I classes in Madera County. Fresno State Parent University classes meet two times a week for nine weeks, from 6 - 8 pm. Parents who attend 80% of the classes and pass a final exam will graduate with a certificate in Digital Literacy I.
