The UCLA Family Commons is a new kind of wellness center that offers family coaching, parenting workshops, and classes in martial arts, mindful awareness, arts and yoga, for all ages. Our family coaches and instructors provide tools and information, practical solutions, and activities that help families raise the healthiest children possible.

At the UCLA Family Commons, families meet, share, practice, and transform their daily lives into healthy routines through workshops, coaching, and fun activities and events.

All programs and services are grounded in the latest science about parenting and healthy child development. Our methodology is based on the best research from UCLA and other institutions around the world. We continually review this research to create new programs that embody the foremost thinking about what children need to thrive. We’re here to share this information with you, so you can make the best possible choices for your family.
