Become a PPN Facilitator

Typically working in teams of two, group facilitators are dedicated Piedmont parents  who attend training at the beginning of the school year.  Many have prior facilitation experience.  All are committed to our community and to raising our teens in a healthy environment - together.  The training focuses on group process, active listening skills, teen developmental stages, and the nuts and bolts of facilitating a cohesive parent group.  The only requirement for becoming a PPN facilitator is a commitment to creating an inclusive, supportive parent group environment.
