About

Parent Leaders are ambassadors in the community, by offering other parents information about proven "parenting techniques" related to protective factors (and community-based programs to refer their teens to); addressing issues of stigma and help-seeking; and countering the shame and negative experiences that other parents of adolescents are facing.

These recruited and trained Parent Leaders will conduct peer education sessions with parents in their communities, whether they take place at parent workshops, community events, small-group discussions or one-on-one dialogues. After the training, the Parent Leaders will then immerse themselves in the fabric of their neighborhoods, prepared to teach other parents how to give "immediate emotional support" to the youth in their lives. Parent Leaders will be the spark for a community-wide skills transfer process.
