Family Agency Collaborative Training Team (FACTT)

The mission of FACTT is to unify efforts that support the growth and maintenance of NC family trainer development and family-agency training partnerships

Our center is proud to be a sponsoring member of FACTT

The FACTT team works to support North Carolina partnership training teams.

Partnership training teams are defined as two or more trainers who work together to create and deliver training materials in support of research, practice and policy implementation. These teams are comprised of at least one trainer who represents experience within the system being trained and one trainer who has experience as the recipient of the services, policies or research
findings being trained.
