“I wished I had this kind of network when I was getting started and over the years. I think there is value in the substantive feedback from peers (lessons learned, sample docs, case studies, etc.) but also the camaraderie of knowing that there are people out there wearing similar hats.” – Erin Kahn
NCFP’s Peer Networks are small group virtual learning conversations focused on a particular topic. Sessions are held several times a year via video chat.
Joining a peer network can help you connect with others facing similar challenges and successes. Sessions are not recorded to make space to allow you to explore ideas off the record with colleagues.
The Board Chair Peer Network, Non-family Staff Peer Network, and Engaging Youth Peer Network are available exclusively to our Friends of the Family Network. Thanks to special funding, the Strategic Lifespan Peer Network is open to the field at large.
