Parent Academy Workshops

  • DPSCD offers families healthy and free activities focusing on career preparation, ways to help your child, how to cope with trauma, handling stress, and various family enrichment events. 

    The Parent Academy targets three key pillars:

    • Student Achievement – workshops and activities that provide strategies and tools for parents to support academic achievement at home and in school
    • Personal and Professional Development – workshops that build confidence while addressing basic needs, employment, family support, financial literacy and goal setting for the healthy development of families
    • Parenting/Advocacy – workshops for parents and caregivers to build and increase their effectiveness in advocating on behalf of children

    All Parent Academy courses are free of charge and designed for parents, caregivers and community members. Students are welcome to attend along with their families if appropriate.
