The Parenting in America curriculum was developed specifically to address the unique challenges immigrant parents face as they—and their children—adapt to American culture.
Parenting in America
Offered in Haitian Creole and Spanish
In Parenting in America, a small group of parents and caregivers meet for 2 hours a week for 12 weeks. The program includes activities, discussions, a family-style meal, and complimentary childcare.
Parents and caregivers who immigrate to the United States bring with them a wealth of parenting strengths – drawing on culture, tradition, and family experience – yet living in a multicultural setting can be challenging.
In Parenting in America, we encourages parents to honor their cultural heritage while also helping them to develop new culturally responsive practices and strategies. Parents graduate from the program feeling empowered to face immigration challenges that affect them as individuals and as parents, recognizing that perseverance is key to their success.
Location: Somerville, MA (Click here of a list of replication sites across the United States)
Duration: 12 Weeks
Cost: Free! Complimentary childcare and family-style meal provided.
