The Parent Project ®
Over 1000 Parent Project Graduates!
Hosted by The Office of Diversity and Equity
The Parent Project® is a free, 12-week course that is offered in English and Spanish to anyone who cares for a child or adolescent. The classes meet for three hours each week. Parents learn parenting skills and get information about resources and other support available in their communities. Parents/caregivers learn and practice skills such as:
- appropriate ways to discipline
- preventing or stopping alcohol, drug and tobacco use
- improving communication skills
- improving grades and school attendance
Here’s what one parent said after taking the course:
I am a single parent of two teenagers. When I thought my children’s lives were at risk, I felt lonely with no answers to all the problems in our lives. I took the parent project class when my children were struggling, and I finally found hope. This class will help parents have a better relationship with their children, and help them succeed. – Yolanda R.
