On Friday, April 11th, 17 Danbury parents graduated from our People Empowering People (PEP) parent leadership program. At left are the graduates and their children who performed at the graduation held at Hatter’s Park. Many of them also traveled to Hartford in March for Early Childhood Advocacy Day, where they spoke with State Representatives Bob Godfrey and David Arconti, and State Senator Mike McLachlan. Many thanks to the facilitators, childcare providers and donors who made this possible, especially the Danbury Public School District Extended Learning Program, TJX Companies, and State of Connecticut Parent Trust.

Recent PEP Graduates
UConn Extension’s People Empowering People (PEP) Program held a facilitator training led by Robin Drago in December. Participants came from Hartford, Danbury, New Haven, Coventry, New London and Mansfield and will offer UConn PEP for parents in those communities. UConn PEP is a personal and family development training with a strong community focus. Our most recent graduates will facilitate the UConn PEP program and work with parents to build upon their individual life experiences and strengths to encourage growth in communication and problem solving skills, parent/family relationships and community involvement.
