G.R.E.A.T. Families Training (GFT)

Specialized training is available for certified G.R.E.A.T. instructors who are interested in delivering the G.R.E.A.T. Families Component in their communities. This intensive training will prepare lead facilitators to plan, organize, and conduct the G.R.E.A.T. Families Program in their communities. Certified lead facilitators are authorized to train their own cofacilitation teams. Cofacilitators can include teachers, youth counselors, members of the faith community, parents, or other qualified adults who are committed to working with families and have been properly vetted by the appropriate law enforcement agency.

The G.R.E.A.T. Families Training (GFT) is a 2-day course. Only certified G.R.E.A.T. instructors are eligible to attend GFT classes. See the GFT Training Schedule for a list of current training opportunities and the G.R.E.A.T. Families Training Application to apply for training.

For upcoming GFT dates, see Training Schedules.


Tuition for this course is $250 per participant. Participants are responsible for their lodging, travel, meals, and miscellaneous expenses.

Scheduling Training

Due to reduced funding, GFT opportunities are currently very limited in the United States and are only scheduled on demand. Contact the G.R.E.A.T. Program Office at information@great-online.org for more information and to express your interest in this training.
