As an AmeriCorps Parent Educator, you will be trained to provide two evidence-based Nurturing Parenting Programs®: “Nurturing Skills for Families” and “Spanish-Speaking Parents and Their Children Ages 4-12”. You will recruit families to participate in the program, either by following up on direct referrals made by community partners or through family engagement activities in the community. You will provide the NPP program either individually or in groups, depending on community need. As a Parent Educator, you will work as part of a team with other NBSF AmeriCorps members to plan and implement Parent Cafes and Parent-Child Activities that are designed to strengthen social connections among families. Parent Cafes are evidence-based, small-group structured discussions that enable parents to explore strengths, learn about the protective factors, and create strategies from their own wisdom and experiences to help strengthen their families.
