Parent Empowerment Program

As part of our work to support and promote the development of evidence-based programs designed specifically to engage, educate and empower parents and communities of color, NBCDI has developed and is implementing (with a rigorous evaluation supported by Child Trends) the second edition of the Parent Empowerment Program (PEP), a comprehensive, culturally-relevant, self-discovery curriculum for parents and guardians to improve their effectiveness as the primary positive influence in the lives of their children. 

This year, the BCDI-DC Metro Affiliate piloted the new PEP curriculum and will continue to implement the program in the DC Metropolitan Area.
