PARENT LEADERSHIP ACADEMY offer from CEI-PEA
PARENT LEAD ERSHIP ACADEMY APRIL 15, 2013
For the past 20 years, Education for Excellence has offered the Parent Leadership Training \ a dynamic growth and development course based on the premise that, as parents, "we teach who we are". This uplifting and inspiring course supports parents in developing essential life skills they can teach their children by example--skills such as focused listening, assertive communication , peaceful conflict resolution , forgiveness, taking responsibility, and conscious choice.
In an effort to make this life-transforming course available to even more parents , Education for Excellence, working in partnership with CEI-PEA, offers the Parent Leadership Academy, a 30- hour "train the trainer" program that empowers parent support personnel (Parent Coordinators, Social Workers, Guidance Counselors) from schools and organizations to own and offer the Parent Leadership Training® in their communities . Graduates of the Parent Leadership Academy have:
• Improved their relationship skills, leadership ability and professional competence
