Parents as champions for healthy schools

Calling all Parents!!!

The Center for Prevention and Counseling’s School Health Team is excited to invite all parents throughout the communities you serve to the 2022 Parents as Champions Training! The Center has provided this unique and engaging training to parents across Sussex, Warren, Essex, Bergen, Passaic, Morris, and Hudson county for over six years. This year, they are bringing it right to you via zoom! This four-session training will teach parents how a school system works and empower them to be a positive voice amongst their child’s school community. Each parent who completes all four sessions will receive a $125 stipend and the opportunity to apply for a $1,000 grant to aid in implementing the project they create during the course. Some projects that have been successfully implemented in the past are; school gardens, outdoor classrooms, pet therapy programs, and staff wellness initiatives, to name a few.
