We are so excited to invite you to SUMMER SCHOOL - CSFPA's virtual education conference for 2021!

We have some great workshops lined up for you this year - and you can still participate from the comfort of your home or office since it is all virtual through the Zoom application.

The conference will take place over four days, Thursday June 24th, Friday June 25th, Monday June 28th and Tuesday June 29th. If you attend each workshop - you will earn over 20 hours of continuing education programming. You may pick and choose what classes you want each day. Choose one - choose all! Select all you want - but attend the classes you select! Many classes have limited enrollment so we don't want anyone missing because of a no show! Don't be that guy!

Priority enrollment is given to foster and kinship parents! Once enrolled you will receive a confirmation email. Closer to the class date, you will receive an email with participation instructions and the link for the class. Once the class is completed, you will receive your certificate of participation via email.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at It's almost time to hop on the bus! Enrollment registration coming soon!
