PASSPORT TO LOVE
Get ready for an incredible adventure in love exploration and learn some amazing ways to enhance your relationship! The Utah Marriage Commission and the Department of Family and Human Studies at Salt Lake Community College have partnered to offer this awesome date night experience FREE of charge to engaged and married couples.
Passport to Love is a workshop (one evening per week for five weeks) focused on helping couples strengthen their relationship in a fun, date-like environment. Date nights are filled with activities that teach participants techniques from the acclaimed and respected PREP curriculum (Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program).
PREP is based on over 30 years of scientific research and testing, and is geared toward enhancing connection, intimacy, and commitment within relationships. Its effectiveness has been studied and demonstrated in multiple countries and among varying groups of participants. Learn more about PREP at www.prepinc.com.
As skill-building takes practice and commitment, we ask couples who sign up for the workshop to commit to attending all five date nights. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity! Registration is limited to 20 couples per class. Join us for five FREE, fun, enriching experiences with your significant other!

Meet Robby & Courtney Parker
Courtney and Robby have been married since 2011 and are the parents of three daughters and a sweet baby boy. They found each other at BYU, where Courtney graduated in Marriage and Family studies and Robby graduated in Electrical Engineering. Courtney hopes to return to school to earn her Master's degree in Social Work and work in the non-profit sector, teach at the college level, or conduct therapy. Robby enjoys his job as a software developer for a genealogy website. Both are trained in the PREP curriculum and have been teaching together since 2014.
A few things that have benefited their marriage from the PREP program include: making fun and friendship a focus in their marriage, using the speaker/listener technique, and using time outs when needed. Their motto as a couple is: "you are my safe place," because they feel safe and secure being with each other and each feels valued for who they are.
One thing they enjoy about teaching Passport to Love is hearing that couples are improving their communication patterns. Their favorite activities include: singing loudly with the kids in the car, going on weekly dates (without the children), and spending time with extended family.
