Peer Advocate Trainings

The New York Foundling has been funded by the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to offer no-cost frequent trainings for Family and Youth Peers and their Supervisors through the Family and Youth Peer Support (FYPS) Programs contracted through DOHMH.  We will be offering Peer trainings to non-FYPS contracted programs in the future. If you are interested in being updated on the training offerings, please join our mailing list!
