When parents are provided leadership opportunities, they become active participants in advocating for their child, family and communities. The Parent Partnership and Tennessee Parent Leadership team's Mission is to protect children and promote their well-being by collaborating with communities and families across the state.
The Parent Leadership Team is composed of parents and practitioners representing prevention programs in each of the Department of Children’s Services 12 regions. Through monthly training, advocacy and community involvement the leadership team is transforming communities across Tennessee by infusing parent voices in program planning. What skills are necessary for parent leaders? Desire to be an advocate for children and families, ability to effectively communicate with others, willingness to share personal experiences, and vision beyond their own circumstances.
