YWCA Parent Awareness

Parent Awareness is a family-focused program that provides support and education to parents and children to encourage the healthy, positive development of youth and families in Darien and surrounding areas.

The evolution of the Parent Awareness has paralleled a national focus on using parent education as a positive, proactive approach to address topics such as alcohol and substance abuse, stress and anxiety, Internet safety and social networking, self esteem and self reliance, and media literacy.

Parent Awareness presents high-quality speakers and develops hands-on parenting support programs. Parent Awareness program dates for will be posted an eblast, newspapers and on our website.

The YWCA Parent Awareness Board collaborates closely with parents, school administrators and community leaders to provide numerous programs each year on relevant, current topics for parents of children from birth through high school.

Who’s educating YOU?
Parents in Fairfield County spend thousands of dollars a year on children’s activities. Invest in your own education by supporting Parent Awareness!

Parent Awareness programs are always free of charge and funded solely through private donations and the fundraising efforts of the YWCA. Please donate today and join the school PTOs and other Darien families already showing their support.
