About

Parent Support Group facilitator in men's county prison in Boston. Meets Mondays, 12:30-1:30.

Parents Helping Parents: Empowering parents to nurture children and prevent child abuse.

Parents Helping Parents runs a network of support groups for parents who want to improve relationships with their children. Parents come to our support groups seeking encouragement and feedback on parenting-related issues. Shared leadership, trust, respect, responsibility, and positive parenting are key components of our support groups. Our groups provide a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment for creating positive and caring peer relationships. Our approach is preventative; once the emotional support of the parent has been strengthened, a parent is better able to actively guide and nurture the family.

We need a volunteer (you!) to act as a group facilitator for a parent support group in a Suffolk County men's prison. As a facilitator, you will be maintaining the safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment which characterizes our support groups.

  • Must demonstrate an understanding of stressors within a family that could potentially trigger child abuse and/or neglect
