Parent Leadership

Parent Leadership is a Program hosted by Infant Child Enrichment Services.  It is a group, open to the community, with adults who want to strengthen their family and their community.  Each spring, there is an annual Parent Leadership Training. The intensive and interactive annual training event is about 20 hours, and parents who complete the training receive a certificate. 

Parents who complete the annual training are also able to help plan future Parent Leadership Trainings.  In addition to the training, there are Parent Leadership meetings every few months.  The Parent Leadership meetings focus on building strengths and skills to address issues parents are facing in Tuolumne County.  

Parent Leadership was designed to give parents a voice in the community, encouraging them to actively participate in the organizations in which their children are involved. 

If you are interested in participating in events/trainings or in being connected to a Parent Leader, please contact Taralah Jones (209) 533-0377 for more information.
