Parents Helping Parents

About Parents Helping Parents: Parents Helping Parents is a nonprofit offering two services to parents in need: The Parental Stress Line and Parent Support Groups.Our goal is to empower parents to nurture their children, prevent child abuse 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 facilitator for a parent support group at YMCA in Malden. As a 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 1.5 hours on Mondays from 6:30-8pm
