Parent Leadership Academy II
PCA Florida and the Florida Department of Children and Families are pleased to announce the launch of Parent Leadership Academy II. Parent Leadership Academy II is a three-part series of workshops that will develop parent leaders, build a network of community advocates and provide information to strengthen the work we do on behalf of Florida’s children.
Our first goal is to collect information that will help us improve the Pinwheels for Prevention campaign. To accomplish this, we will conduct focus groups across each DCF region during the months of December and January to survey parents, caregivers and foster parents regarding media effectiveness and preferences.
Each DCF region has been asked to select a sponsor to co-host one or more Parent Leadership Academy II meetings. PCA Florida will provide a meal and a $25 gift card to parent participants (Married couples are eligible for one gift
card). The first meeting should take approximately one hour and should be made up of no more than 25 parents and 3-4 staff members.
If you are interested in sponsoring a group, contact Chris Lolley, email@example.com . Stay tuned for more details on this exciting and important project!
Children’s Week 2017
