Project Description:

The Parents and Educators Together (PET) project is a four-year project funded by the Ford Family Foundation Enhancing the Skills of Parents Program that runs through December 31, 2010. PET is a collaborative venture among The Teaching Research Institute at Western Oregon University, the Dallas School District, Community Action Agency Head Start of Marion and Polk Counties, Child Care Information Services of Polk, Marion and Yamhill Counties, and the Polk County Commission for Children and Families. The project provides parent education classes and social skills instructional sessions for children in Polk County using the Second Step Violence Prevention Curriculum. In addition, the project supports the Polk County Commission for Children and Families in providing parent education sessions in the Making Parenting a Pleasure Curriculum. The project is designed to equip parents with skills to support their child’s social and emotional development.
