Parent to Parent

The MCEC Parent to Parent program empowers parents to be their child’s strongest advocate on educational and social issues through MCEC Parent Workshops. More than 170,000 parents have attended these workshops since the program’s beginning in 2006.

In the MCEC Parent Workshops, trainers share practical ideas, proven techniques, and solid resources to support military-connected families.

There are 15 Parent to Parent teams in the U.S., and Europe. Teams usually consist of 3 highly-trained professionals, and they concentrate on providing the Parent Workshops to families in their region; the Department of the Army has provided funding for many of these teams.

Because military-connected families live in every zip code, the MCEC has developed the Parent to Parent Surge Program to offer one-day parent education seminars for parents outside the range of the community based teams. 

Army installations without a resident Parent to Parent team may request a Parent to Parent Surge  from the Department of the Army Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation Command.  This one day parent education seminar provides our most requested parent education workshops and resources at no cost to the installation.  These seminars are also available to non-Army Installations and civilian communities and school districts for a nominal fee.

For information on the Parent to Parent Surge program, please contact Parent to Parent.
