Thanks to an amazing donation of services from Youth Change, we are excited to announce that on Wednesday and Thursday June 17th & 18th, 2015 Parent Partnership will be hosting the 2-day class Breakthrough Strategies to Teach and Counsel Troubled Youth by Youth Change at Cottage Grove High School. All proceeds go directly to Parent Partnership to support local kids and their families.
This is an exciting professional development opportunity at a reduced cost, but maximum benefit: the class is only $99, which is a huge savings, as it is normally $169. A graduate credit is available through Seattle Pacific University for a tuition of only $45 payable to SPU at the conference.
Spread the word, the 10th annual Bikefest is coming back to Cottage Grove’s Bohemia park on June 21st! Besides being a fascinating local event, it is a great fundraiser for Parent Partnership’s work and services for unaccompanied youth (kids on their own).
With hundreds of motorcycles, the vent boasts a bike show, poker run, live bands, vendors and much more. Come for the bikes, stay for the fun, and support our local kids that are going to school, caring for themselves, without the help of an adult.
Stay on top of all that Parent Partnership does by following us on Twitter (@ParentPartnersh) and by liking us on Facebook. Help us spread the word about all of the valuable services and information that Parent Partnership offers: follow us! The more followers we gain, the more likely other people, especially families, will find us.
A huge thank you to Community 101 and their $1,500 grant to Parent Partnership! The Community 101 Grant is sponsored by the Cottage Grove High School Link Crew Class, both with their Teacher, Mr. Knutson and the students help determine the programs that earn the grants. What an important way to help fund a community organization that helps families and kids, as well as a way to show high school students about supporting and working in their community.
The Cottage Grove High School Link Crew is an important program that has been running for years. It helps incoming ninth grade students transition from middle school into their new surroundings at the high school. This year-long program helps students integrate themselves into their new environment, connect with the upperclassmen, and encourages them to try the new sports, activities, and clubs that are offered by CGHS.
