Juvenile Justice Parenting Program Classes Begin Wednesdays July 31, 2019 through September 25, 2019

July 31 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm

JUVENILE JUSTICE PARENTING PROGRAM 2019 – 2020 SCHEDULE OF CLASSES

These classes are for parents of at-risk youth. Families may attend because their child has come to the attention of the court, is truant from school or is involved in activities that put him/her at risk of court involvement. Both parents and the youth may participate in the program.

While parents are exploring and strengthening their parenting skills, the youth address issues such as peer pressure, choice-making and anger management. Frequently both groups discuss specific risky behaviors such as drug use and sexual activity.

Classes are held in two-hour sessions one night a week for eight weeks. They are offered throughout the county at various locations. The program fee is $40 for all families. The groups are led by instructors who have master’s degrees and extensive experience working with at-risk youth and their families.

There are 11 classes scheduled for this year. Four JJPP classes will be led in Spanish. Sessions are scheduled to be held evenings from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm for youth and from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm for parents. Parents may choose which session location and session classes that work best for them.

PLEASE NOTE: We are now required to charge $40.00 for each family. Checks or Money Orders should be made payable to: VCE Prince William County. For hardship cases, please indicate on the back of the registration form.

Professionals can either email or fax (703-792-4630) the completed Parent Education Registration Form. Forms are available at www.pwcgov.org/parenting.

We will consider the family registered when we receive the completed registration form.
