We want to thank you for your interest in facilitating the Courage to Speak - Courageous Parenting 101® program in your local community.
As a facilitator of our parenting program, you will give parents the tools and knowledge required to communicate more effectively with their children on substance abuse issues. It is expected that participating parents will demonstrate an active role in supporting children’s decisions to not use tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs. They will also develop improved listening and communication skills, which have been shown to be a critical factor in the prevention of substance abuse by young people.
