Description

The Family Center for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs is proud to sponsor this free event to parents/caregivers of children with special health care needs:

Parent Mentor Training

The Family Center for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs invites you to a Parent Mentor Training in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

  • Remember when your child was newly diagnosed?
  • Would it have helped to have someone to talk with who has “been there”?
  • Are you interested in supporting other parents?


In our free, interactive Parent Mentor Training learn from a fellow parent about:

  • Parent-to-Parent Support
  • Communication Skills
  • Listening Techniques
  • Community Resources


If you are a parent, caregiver, or guardian of a child/youth with special health care needs and would like to make a difference in the lives of others, please join us for a free opportunity to become a trained Parent Mentor.

This training is open to all families who have a child with a medical, physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional condition. As a trained Parent Mentor, you will become a part of our statewide network of volunteer parents supporting one another, sharing resources, and helping to navigate various systems.

**Participants will be given a $25 gift card, Medical Care Binder and a Family Center Notebook**
