Young Parents Program
The Young Parents Program at LAYC is a fun way to learn about the responsibilities of being a parent. Participants attend dynamic, interactive workshops where they work closely with a Parent Educator as well as learn from their peers in either the Prenatal or Parenting workshop series.
All participants will also work individually with a Case Manager to establish personal and family goals, and work towards achieving them. Additionally, participants have the opportunity to attend special events such as mentor lunches, fatherhood activities, holiday celebrations, field trips and family celebrations.
In the Parenting series, participants explore parenting styles, reflect on personal experiences, think critically about what it means to be a good mother and father, and practice modeling positive behaviors for their children. Class topics include Child Development, Positive Discipline, Child Safety, Stress Management, Family Planning, Healthy Relationships, Effective Communication, and more.
Sponsored and funded by DHHS- Administration for Children and Families and DHS-Income Maintenance Administration. These services are available to all eligible persons, regardless of race, gender, age, disability, or religion.
