Parent Leadership Chat Groups

CALLING ALL PARENTS

We need you to host a parent leadership chat group in your home or community! SAPCA members will help you launch the group and facilitate the first session using the facilitator guide, "Connecting for Alcohol Free Youth: A Parent Discussion".

Help parents engage in open dialogue with other parents about how to prevent underage drinking and drug abuse among their kids.

OBJECTIVES

1.      Connect with other parents who care about underage drinking prevention.

2.      Learn new information about underage drinking and how to prevent it.

3.      Share challenges and ideas for preventing underage drinking.

4.      Get practical tips to use at home and share with other parents.

Become a facilitator for your own Parent Chat Group! Contact Noraine Buttar at 703-746-3670 or noraine.buttar@alexandriava.gov to host or join a group.

SAPCA has launched four unique groups, three in English, one in Spanish, hosted by parents in their homes and at two community centers, with over 50 parents and community members engaging in open dialogue about alcohol, drugs and other risky behaviors.
