California Healthy Marriages Coalition (CHMC) launched a Marriage Class Finder feature on CaMarriage.com to help Californians easily find Marriage Education (ME) and Relationship Skills Training (RST) classes. 

 In its first month, nearly 9,000 visitors viewed CaMarriage.com, 237,000 hits were registered, and over 125 classes were posted on the site!

But these are just numbers.  The reason the Marriage Class Finder exists is to help singles, couples, and parents find and access ME classes to improve their relationships, their marriages, and their families.
 
People are finding the ME/RST classes they want and need at CaMarriage.com!  And spreading the word to others too!
 
This quote was posted by missmarjan1 at the ProjectWedding blog: “Hi ladies. My FI found this site and I thought I’d pass it along. It provides info on workshops held in CA that are intended to prepare engaged couples for a healthy marriage. (It also has info on workshops for married couples). www.CaMarriage.com
 
Pastors, counselors, marriage educators, lay leaders, community intiative leaders are invited to list ME/RST classes on CaMarriage.com.  (On the homepage, look for the “MARRIAGE EDUCATORS: List your classes on CaMarriage.com!” link).  
 
Examples of ME/RST classes include:
 
-Encounter Retreats
-Small Groups going through a marriage or relationship series
-Weekend marriage retreat or conference for couples
-Stepfamily class using a curriculum or program (no support groups please)
-Premarital classes or workshops
-Classes for individuals or couples in a distressed marriage relationship
-Trainings for leaders in a marriage/relationship program (i.e. PREPARE/ENRICH)
-Relationship-skills classes for singles or high-schoolers
 
Some of the most-listed programs include: Mastering the Mysteries of Love, 10 Great Dates, Marriage Encounter, and Engaged Encounter.  The Marriage Class Finder is for standardized programs, research-backed programs, faith-based programs, and originally-designed programs.
 
Our only criteria is (1) the class is open to the entire community, (2) the course content focuses primarily on teaching couples and/or individuals skills to help their relationship and/or marriage thrive, and (3) the class occurs within California. 

It’s simple, easy, and free to list your ME/RST classes at CaMarriage.com 

Individuals and couples can find ME classes even easier!

CHMC made searching for classes even easier by swapping out the zip code search feature with a much easier to use Geographic Region dropdown box (search Southern California, Central California, Northern California – Inland, Northern California – Coastal, Entire State).  

The Stage of Relationship dropdown box has been expanded so it is easier for people to find the classes they want and need.  The stages include: Youth & Singles, Seriously Dating & Engaged, General Marriage Enrichment, Newly Married, New/Exectant Parents, Step Family, Empty Nesters, and Distressed Marriages.  

The Language dropdown box currently has English, Spanish, Korean and Other

With the simple click of the Search button – searchers are provided with a summary of classes that meet their specific criteria, as well as a customized Google Map that plots every class on the list.  For more specific details on the class, the searcher simply clicks on the title of the class for a description of the class, the location of the class, and registration details including cost, contact information to reserve a spot at the class. 

 So what are you waiting for?  Go list your ME/RST classes and join California’s fastest-growing clearinghouse of ME classes!
