The Washington SNAP-Ed program is committed to a statewide training program for all staff involved with SNAP-Ed. Each year we conduct in person and web based training on topics pertaining to curriculum, Policy, Systems and Environment (PSE) work, current topics in nutrition, food safety and more.
Our work is centered on the goals of the Snap-Ed program: to assist low income families in their understanding of healthy food choices, the importance of physical activity to their health and ultimately a reduction in obesity for the people we serve.
DSHS has directed your CTS Team to plan and implement the statewide training program. If you have suggestions for upcoming training, please get in touch with us. Simply send us a message at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Teaching SNAP-Ed approved curriculum with fidelity is a requirement of the SNAP-Ed program. We have developed tools and trainings to help everyone deliver direct education with fidelity. We hope you will find them useful as you plan and implement SNAP-Ed programs across the state.
We look closely at the curriculum the state has selected to see how, as a program, we are following the lessons as written. We know when this is accomplished the likelihood of behavior change for the families we serve will increase.
