Some communities have found it helpful to hire a community member who knows the families to help recruit.

  • Identify target audience (could be a grade in school, church group, families served by a specific agency or agencies).
  • Invite 4-6 parents from the target group for a short informational meeting.
  • Show 5 minute promotional video, lead a sample activity, and generate interest in program.
  • Ask these parents to serve as "program shepherds" who will each invite 1-2 families to the program.
  • Ask youth and family-serving agencies to refer families.
