Parent Education Groups offer pregnant and parenting youth and young adults the opportunity to increase parenting skills, social skills, independent living skills and pregnancy prevention as well as awareness of physical, chemical and mental health.
The group component of the program consists of weekly sessions with teaching methods that include lecture, group discussion, problem solving, videos, role-playing, art projects, and hands-on activities. Groups are open and tailored to the location they serve in terms of number of sessions and focus. Parents are also provided case management services and one to one or in home sessions as needed.
