September Support Parent Training
September 27, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Vermont Family Network (VFN) is seeking Support Parent volunteers! If you are at a point in your parenting journey where you are ready to support another family, please consider becoming a trained VFN Support Parent with our Parent Match Program.
Through a one-to-one “match,” experienced Support Parents offer emotional support to families and assist them in finding information and resources. Over the years, VFN has made hundreds of parent matches and we hear from parents again and again about how helpful it was to talk with another parent who has “been there.”
This month’s training will be delivered in 2 parts. In Part 1, we will share our Power Point training slides (through email) along with a questionnaire that will ensure participant’s understanding of the material. Part 2 will involve joining a Support Parent Zoom gathering for discussion about the Parent Match process, review of necessary skills, and sharing of family stories. This gathering is scheduled for Tuesday, September 27 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Interested parents can complete this Survey Monkey application.
After we receive your application, Mindy will reach out begin the training process. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
We appreciate your interest in VFN’s Parent Match Program!
