Our Mission Our NeedOur Word
The combination of passion and compassion for serving children and families is simply not enough to navigate the complexities of the social service world. KCSL's training department is committed to developing and honing the skills of the dedicated professionals desiring to increase their effectiveness in serving families and children.

KCSL conducts quality training opportunities for professionals, foster parents and adoptive parents by offering both traditional classroom settings as well as the most up to date online learning opportunities. Course topics are developed in collaboration with those most concerned with the practical implementation of the skills. Incorporating the most current research and innovative theories is an integral component to training design.

These trainings are then brought to life by skillful trainers, concentrating on the skills that facilitate and that are most likely to transfer the learning into practical application. Learning is achieved by focusing on the needs of the learner to promote a deeper understanding of the tasks involved in the new skills being presented.

KCSL is a member of a training coalition sponsored through the Children's Alliance training collaborative. All training sponsored by this initiative is free of charge and available to child welfare workers, foster and adoptive parents desiring more educational opportunities. Information for more than 450 trainings held annually across the state can be accessed at the Children's Alliance website.
