Parent Project Class of 2016!

Parent Project 2016 classes have just graduated and we’re opening new classes at the start of the new year! 

This semester, over 70 parents and family members participated in the program across San Mateo County. Among smiles, laughs, and a great sense of accomplishment, parents hosted potlucks across all of our sites to celebrate their hard work. Many parents shared how the 12 week course has improved their family relationships, and more importantly, how it made them re-evalutate their roles as parents. One mother explained, “…I grew up with a different definition [of parenting], and this class helped me understand the value and importance of giving love to our children…” (Rosalba -Cunha Middle School). Others expressed how they appreciated socializing and building support groups with other parents.
