The AOK Network (a program of the Health Department), The Baby Fold, The Children’s Foundation, and other, local organizations are offering parents an opportunity to attend a Parent Leadership Training. This training provides parents a chance to connect more fully with other parents, learn more about local opportunities, and enrich family and community activities. (Please see below and attached flyers.)
The goal is to help support healthy parents who feel strong and confident in their role as a parent and are able to be parents in a less stressful, more successful and meaningful ways. Parents can learn to grow and understand the opportunities they have to speak up for their kids in whatever community they are in, whether that be schools, faith, child care, or the larger community. The intent to help families find a larger voice within the McLean County community.
There is only one commitment for the training. If a person plans to attend, it's asked that they attend four sessions. Couples are not obligated to attend together; thus one parent may attend the training without the other.
The training is free to parents who live in McLean County. It is open to anyone parenting a child of any age; including foster parents, grandparents raising grandchildren, and relatives raising other’s children. Lunch and snacks will be provided. Parents who live outside of McLean County are welcome as well; it will be asked they pay a small cost to cover food and materials.
