Nurturing Parenting Training Opportunity

NP Simple Flyer2

Greetings all,

I am excited to share this unique opportunity for service providers or engaged community members who work with families and are looking to provide extra support in regards to helping those families develop parenting skills. At Youth Contact we use this training for home visiting and also for group parenting classes. The curriculum for both is well planned out, evidence based, and culturally inclusive. Nurturing Parenting is the model we most frequently rely on to show OPEC that parents are learning and applying what we are teaching to create a safe and nurturing environment for their children.

Parents get a lot from the curriculum! Last quarter they were saying

“I have more empathy towards my children. My daughter is communicating better and we talk things out now.”

“Me ayuda a profundizar mas acerca de la manera de educar a mis hijos”

“It was so great. I really enjoyed the experience!”

If you have any questions about group discount rates, the curriculum, or program implementation, please do not hesitate to send me an email at scordua@youthcontact.org or give me a call at (503)640-4222 x 713.

Warm regards,

Sarah Cordua
