2012 PRIDE Classes
Parent Resources for Information, Development and Education, PRIDE, is the standard foster/adoption preparation class used by most agencies in Los Angeles County covering all required training material and is the first step toward certification. In addition to providing applicants with valuable information about the issues with which foster and adoptive children struggle, instructors assist applicants in completing all other certification requirements during the course.
PRIDE classes in 2012 are held every other month starting January, March, May, July, September, and November
Each four-week course is free.
