Who We Are
Parent Project Mission Statement
Our mission is to develop parent training programs for parents raising difficult or out-of-control children. We are committed to providing highly effective programs that are affordable for every parent.
Why the Parent Project?
As an educator, no one is more in tune with the issues surrounding high-risk youth than you. Teen drug use, youth gangs, school violence, failing grades, truancy, and classroom discipline, are just a few of the problems teachers face every day.

The Quintessential “COPS” Program
The Parent Project is a community police program developed in Los Angeles County. In the Parent Project model, law enforcement officers work directly with parents to help improve adolescent children’s school attendance and performance, reduce family conflict, curb drug and alcohol use, prevent runaways, stop violent behavior and develop strong in-home prevention and intervention strategies for youth gang involvement.

- Are you searching for new methods to link with the referral sources in your community (schools, probation, courts, law enforcement, etc.)?
