Extension Program: Choose Love For Caregivers

About This Program

Caregivers play a pivotal role in the well-being and resilience of children in their care. Often children in care have experienced great trauma. Caregivers who mentor the Choose Love mindset and teach the Choose Love skills to children in their care will be creating a positive, nurturing foundation for these children to continue to grow and develop.

The Child Welfare Education Partnership is partnering with Choose Love to create the first Choose Love program specifically designed for caregivers including foster and adoptive parents, residential staff, relative caregivers, and other eligible community members.

The course will introduce caregivers to the Choose Love program. The Choose Love program’s formula is based on four-character values: courage, gratitude, forgiveness, and compassion in action, which will be discussed and practiced promoting the well-being and resilience of children and youth in care. The course will provide caregivers with information and opportunities to exercise these character values themselves, as well as identify meaningful ways to use and share the Choose Love formula with children and youth in their care.
