The Family Development Credential course offered by Tioga Opportunities and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tioga County came to an end before the holidays in December. This 90-hour Professional Credentialing course for Family Workers is coordinated with the University of Connecticut. Despite a shift from in-person classes to virtual sessions due to COVID-19 mitigation efforts, six participants successfully completed the course.
Congratulations to: Erica Bayne, Rachel Cron, Sara Chobot, Brian Olevano, Danielle Kenyon and Jody Morrell on earning your Family Development Credentials. Instructors for this course were Denene Ennis and Jackie Spencer.
“Being a family Advocate, the FDC class gave me the strength based skills to support and empower the families I work with at Family Enrichment Network. I hope by passing these skills onto families they will develop life skills, attainable goals and realize their potential for becoming self- sufficient,” said Jody Morrell.
