EMPOWERING WORKSHOP SERIES (EWS)
EWS is an FOTFT initiative in which we offer educational and psycho-educational workshops to communities in Philadelphia and Delaware Counties. The workshops are facilitated by master level social workers. With the use of our workshops we see ourselves as gardeners; planting seeds of hope, love and endurance in the lives of the those we are given the opportunity to encounter.

STANDARDS OF PRACTICE FOR EWS
Educate: The information presented in each workshop is evidence based and has been proven for its effectiveness in said areas.
Motivate: FOTFT facilitators are passionate about the topics presented and the expected outcome of how these workshops could be received, therefore aside from the educational component there is a personal level of heart and commitment in which the information is shared.
Engage: No FOTFT workshop is complete w/out the use of its participants, we are not lecturers, we are facilitators of information, conversation and revelation on the said topics. We rely on hand-outs, crafts and recognizing the special gifts and talents of our attendee to create a welcoming and inviting atmosphere.
Outcomes: Feedback is important and strongly considered as FOTFT continues to grow, therefore we encourage each attendee to complete a short workshop feedback questionnaire. All responses are reviewed, and trends recognized are incorporated to enhancement future workshops.
