Family Education Network (FEN)
University of Minnesota Extension hosts the Family Education Network (FEN) through regional listservs and a Facebook page for professionals who work with families in Minnesota. This network aims to connect and learn about strengthening families and school-age (K-12) parent education.
FEN is designed for professionals from a wide variety of fields who wish to:
- Strengthen the community's capacity for working with families.
- Strengthen the family's capacity within those communities.
- Connect, problem solve, and share with others who do similar work with families and parents.
FEN has six regional listservs that connect professionals to local opportunities. These electronic forums will provide you with useful resources and research, training, and information about opportunities for families and professional development.
