Two Parent Project sessions will begin in October.

From Fremont Police

Back by popular demand, the City's Youth and Family Services has scheduled two new Parent Project® sessions that will begin in October. One class will be held in English and the second in Spanish. 

The program is designed to help parents who are having a tough time with their adolescent children and provides effective prevention and intervention techniques designed to help their teens grow into safe and competent adults. Parent Project® is a 13-week class series that delivers results to families. 

Program outcomes include: 

  • Stop arguments and end conflicts at home 
  • Recognize, prevent and intervene in dangerous activities (alcohol, drugs, tobacco use and gangs). 
  • Improve school attendance and performance. 
  • Improve family relationships and create peace in the home 
  • Motivate and influence teens 

Beginning October 9th, a class in English will meet for 13 weeks on Tuesday evenings and on October 10th, a second class in Spanish will meet for 13 weeks on Wednesday evenings.
