Proud Parenting Program

Youth Alliance, in partnership with the San Benito County Office of Education, is excited to offer the Proud Parenting Program in San Benito County.  Funded through a grant from the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC), the program is available to young or expectant parents, ages 14-25, who have been or are currently involved in the criminal justice, juvenile justice and/or child welfare system.

 

Goal:   Break the intergenerational cycle of violence and delinquency by

  • Increasing knowledge around essential life-skills and resources and competency around pro-social expectations
  • Increasing the use of positive parenting methods, techniques and strategies which do not include the use of corporal punishment
  • Experiencing positive changes in overall family cohesion and decrease in family conflict or violence 

Highlights:   Participants attend the 13-week Nurturing Parenting® Program which offers in-class teaching, group therapy support and home visits.  In addition, each participant  receives case-management services for 6 months to 3 years, as needed.  Case-management includes connecting young parents to resources and introducing them to pro-social events such as enrolling at a gym or signing their child up for a sports team.

 

Agencies can make referrals to the Proud Parenting Program through the electronic referral form located here.
