National Parent Leadership Month

Get Ready to Recognize Parent Leaders!

The Child Welfare League of America (CWLA) is pleased to partner with Parents Anonymous as a cosponsor of National Parent Leadership Month in February 2007. This important initiative will include a series of national, state, and local activities to recognize, honor, and celebrate parents for their leadership roles in their homes and communities. Parents Anonymous has developed a tool kit with extensive resources to plan and organize activities for National Parent Leadership Month. This tool kit can be downloaded from the Parents Anonymous website.

The purpose of National Parent Leadership Month is to

  • raise public awareness about the important roles parents play in shaping the lives of children and families;

  • expand opportunities for parent leaders to participate in meaningful leadership activities;

  • recognize individual parent leaders whose contributions make a positive difference to their families and communities; and

  • build successful partnerships between parent leaders and professionals to strengthen and support families and communities.
In addition to the partnership with Parents Anonymous, CWLA is pleased to join a strong group of cosponsors for National Parent Leadership Month in 2006.

Because we believe lasting and effective systemic changes are more likely to take place when parents, staff, and other community members work together, CWLA has always reached out to parents in communities in which we work. We anticipate that National Parent Leadership Month will be a strong catalyst for generating more active partnerships with parents in meaningful roles.
