Parent Leadership Celebration Event
February 24, 2017
10am – 12:30pm
Ewa Community Center
February has been designated National Parent Leadership Month
The Parent Line will be recognizing, honoring, and celebrating parents for leadership roles in their homes and communities.
National Parent Leadership Month was created to:
• Educate the public about this vital family strengthening and community building strategy; and
• Encourage professionals, policy makers, and other community members to create opportunities to partner with parents to address issues that affect children and families.
Parent Leadership occurs when parents gain the knowledge and skills to function in meaningful leadership roles and represent a “parent voice” to help shape the lives of families and communities, as well as shape the direction of programs and policies that impact them. Parents, grandparents, kinship care providers, foster parents, and anyone in a parenting role who has personal experience in using resources and/or services to strengthen their families, have the potential to become Parent Leaders.
