Facilitator Training

Our 40-hour Parent Project® Facilitator Training course provides the most comprehensive and effective instruction on high-risk youth available today. Participants learn proven strategies that change lives and discover how to develop a collaborative implementation plan designed to meet the specific needs of high-risk families in their community.

Parent Project® Certification is obtained by attending the 5 day, 40-hour Parent Project® Facilitator Training. Due to the serious nature of many children’s high risk-behavior choices, satisfactory completion of the training is required to teach Parent Project® Senior programs. Each trained Parent Project® Facilitator is issued a Certification Number which is necessary to order all Parent Project® Senior materials.

The Parent Project® Facilitator Training is offered in three ways:

1. The Parent Project® Facilitator Training is offered several times through the year in Southern California at a cost of $895.00. Space is limited to a maximum of 48 participants, and includes;
