WHAT IS AFLEQ
AFLEQ is a non-profit professional association concerned with the quality of family life. Organized in 1972, its members are Family Life Educators who are graduates of accredited University programs and are trained to deal with issues faced throughout the life cycle.
The mission of the Association is to promote the recognition of the profession of family life education and of family life educators; to provide training, networking opportunities and support for its members; to uphold professional standards for certification; to use education to prevent crises and to enhance the lives of individuals and families; to adapt and respond to needs, trends and changes in community and family life; and to serve as personal and professional development trainers for organizations and companies.
WHY JOIN AFLEQ ?
Because AFLEQ is a professional association for Family Life Educators, the main reason for joining is to become a part of this community.
For students, the association provides a bridge into the professional world. All members are encouraged to work under supervision and earn AFLEQ's attestation of professional competence.
This is a way of honing your program design and facilitation skills and increasing your professional credibility. AFLEQ members receive frequent email bulletins, containing information on upcoming events and conferences, interesting resources, and motivating articles. Members are encouraged to submit articles about their own work and interests.
AFLEQ hosts a number of networking evenings and social events throughout the year. Many of the contracts we are offered as Family Life Educators come to us through personal contact, so socializing and networking through AFLEQ increases one’s visibility. Perhaps the most important reason to become a member of AFLEQ is to receive support, mentoring, and stimulation from this community of caring colleagues.
