Parent Working Groups are inclusive and diverse groups of parents who exchange questions and experiences with each other in order to strengthen their ability as parents. Parents attend in recognition of the scope and impact of their work as parents. I offer developmental information and facilitate the group process. In Parent Working Groups, empirically demonstrated developmental processes that lead to social, emotional and academic growth for children become understandable and useable for parents. This model was developed and implemented within the Children YES afterschool program at the Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center and will be implemented in 2013 as part of the Mabel Barrett Early Learn Program.
