Parent Leadership Training


Started in 2017, the Wethersfield People Empowering People (PEP) program has graduated nearly 100 parent leaders.

Jeanine Berasi, a UConn Certified PEP Facilitator, leads the class.

How does PEP work?

Instruction: PEP parent leades attend the weekly two-hour sessions focused on values, communication skills, problem solving skills, parenting skills, leadership skills, action planning and community opportunity.

Community Service Projects: Groups and individuals participate in projects that benefit their community.

Wethersfield PEP graduates have prepared welcome gifts for new students in the district, organized Porch Portraits during the COVID-19 pandemic to connect community and raise money for Wethersfield Food Bank and curated an exhibit highlighting the many cultural holidays celebrated in town.
