The Parent Project® is a parent training evidence-based program for parents with strong-willed children ages 12-17 that have out-of-control behavior. The award winning published curriculum teaches parents specific interventions for the most destructive adolescent behaviors such as running away, truancy, drugs, angry outbursts, and gang behavior.
Horizons conducts two Parent Project® programs per year. Our English Parent Project® runs from October to January and is held at Livermore Adult Education, 1401 Almond Avenue, Livermore. Our Spanish Parent Project® runs from March to May and takes place at Del Valle Continuation High School, 2253 Fifth Street, Livermore. Pre-registration is required and slots fill up quickly. Please contact
Horizons at 925-371-4747 if interested in learning more or signing up for our next class.
The English & Spanish-Speaking Parent Project® are both 12 weeks in duration. Each weekly session is three hours – a total of 36 hours of parent training. The classes are held on Tuesdays from 6-9 PM.
The classes are a collaborative effort – facilitators from the Livermore Joint Unified School District, the Livermore Police Department, Horizons Family Counseling and other community agencies. A licensed mental health professional from Horizons Family Counseling will be the lead facilitator. All of the facilitators are certified Parent Project® facilitators and have completed the mandated 40-hour training course.
The cost is $250 per couple ($125 per parent) or $175 for one parent. Scholarships are available for single parents and couples who qualify. Dinner and the workbook are included in the cost. To research more about the Parent Project®, their Web site is http://www.parentproject.com/.
