We provide training to people who have the committed intention of implementing the entire program at least once in Sacramento County. You can add additional aspects to the program but you cannot take anything away and must run the program as it is set up.




I live outside of Sacramento County, Can I become certified by you?


Yes, if you implement to residents of Sacramento County. If you are planning to implement only outside of Sacramento County then you will have to pay a fee to become certified. Fee varies depending on the number of training participants and location of training. Please contact Shari Egeland for quote at shari@omniyouth.net or (916) 362-2000 x14.




What if I want to become certified in a group program but I do not have a place to hold the group?


Family Matters is a send-home program where facilitators call families weekly to check in. Therefore it does not require a physical place to conduct the program. Teens In Action and Active Parenting of Teens can be done virtually online using a free meeting platform such as Zoom or Google Meet. To meet in person there are a variety of community centers, restaurants and other meeting spaces in the Sacramento available free. If you feel comfortable you can even implement a program in your living room. For more information on free spaces in Sacramento County please contact Shari Egeland (916) 362-200 x14
