PARENT LEADERSHIP ACADEMY TRAININGS

This program is offered live in-person or in a blended online format.

In an effort to make the Masterful Parenting Training® available to a significantly larger parent population, Education for Excellence offers the Parent Leadership Academy®, a 30-hour “train the trainer” program that empowers parent support personnel (parent coordinators, social workers, guidance counselors) from schools and organizations to “own” and offer the Parent Leadership Training® in their communities. Graduates of the Parent Leadership Academy have:

  • Improved their relationship skills, leadership ability and professional competence.
  • Been able to turnkey and skillfully present the Masterful Parenting Training® to parent participants in their local community.
  • Gained counseling skills that enable them to support and advise parents more effectively.

LIVE PARENT LEADERSHIP ACADEMY

PARTICIPANTS

  • For parent support personnel (parent coordinators, social workers, guidance counselors, Parent Association representatives).
  • If feasible, we recommend that at least two parent support personnel (Parent Coordinator, Guidance Counselor, Social Worker) attend so they can facilitate the program together. Another benefit of having more than one trained facilitator is that the Masterful Parenting program can still be offered if one of the trained facilitators leaves the school.

LOGISTICS

  • Five 6-hour weekly sessions from 9:30 – 3:30
  • Dr. Rosenbaum’s Masterful Parenting (El Arte de ser Padres) serves as a guide for home assignments and activities.
  • Upon course completion, the participant receives a certificate of completion and presentation DVDs so they can facilitate the Masterful Parenting Training® live to their Spanish and English speaking parents.

COST

  • The fee to train one parent support personnel is $1200.
  • The fee to train additional parent support personnel from the same school is $700 per person.
  • We encourage a parent member of the executive parent board to join the parent support personnel free of charge.
  • The fee includes books, presentation DVDs and training manuals. A certificate of completion will be awarded.
  • This program is in compliance with the use of Title One Parent Involvement funds which have been mandated to support parent education and involvement. Schools can also use PA funds or Professional Development allocations.
