Parent Leadership Training

Thanks to the generous funding of the Liberty Bank Foundation and the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, Wethersfield offered its first UCONN People Empowering People (PEP) Parent Leadership Training Program January – March 2017 at the Tri-Town YMCA, 1321 Silas Deane Highway in Wethersfield.

Jeanine Berasi, WECC Community Outreach Coordinator and UCONN Certified PEP Facilitator was the trainer for the program.  Click here to see Jeanine Berasi’s PEP Presentation delivered at the June 2017 WECC Meeting.

How does PEP work?

Instruction: PEP participants 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. More than 1,300 PEP participants have donated over 3,500 hours to communities.
