Parents Helping Parents: Empowering parents to nurture children and build stronger families

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 provided 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 co-facilitator for a parent support group in the Worcester area. As a co-facilitator, you will be maintaining the safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment which characterizes our support groups.

Requirements:

  • Must demonstrate an understanding of stressors within a family that could potentially trigger child abuse and/or neglect
  • Have previous experience working with parents and families

Commitment:

  • 14 hours of training held in our main office in Watertown, MA
  • 1 year commitment meeting with groups weekly for 1 hour (day/time is flexible)
  • 1 hour orientation at the Suffolk County HOC
