The Parenting Project: Healthy Children, Families, & Communities holds annual in-service events at Cornell University for parent educators and others who work with parents and children across New York State.

Upcoming In-service Events
The 2017 Parent Education In-service Event will be held on October 23rd, 2017 on campus at Beebe Hall. This year’s in-service will be held in coordination with a Project 2Gen kickoff event in the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research (BCTR). Project 2Gen focuses on addressing the needs of vulnerable children and their parents together to capitalize on the strong connection between parents’ well-being and children’s healthy development.
