Parent Engagement

IRENE & RONALD COHEN CENTER FOR PARENT ENGAGEMENT + EDUCATION

All stages of the parenting process, from deciding when to start a family through to raising a child, come with challenges. The never-ending pressure seems unavoidable and the responsibilities, at times, overwhelming.

With a multitude of products, parenting styles, alternative family constellations, support networks, and differing educational programs, how does a parent find a consistent place to go for solid advice and guidance?

Our Center for Parent Engagement + Education addresses parent’s needs, today and throughout the ever-changing landscape of parenthood, by focusing on each individual family. We offer a welcoming space that features classes and provides resources, lectures and personal consultations for all phases of child-rearing, as well as fostering important social connections. Positive parenting methods, balancing work and family life, as well as engaging in recreational activities for the whole family are just a few of the avenues we are addressing to ensure the needs of parents are being met.

Let the JCC support you throughout your parenting journey, all while enhancing the well-being of your family.
