HELPING TO ADVANCE THE FIELD OF PARENTING EDUCATION IN SOUTH CAROLINA
Hundreds of our citizens are looking for
education and information and there is no one place for them to find assistance. SCPEN wants to be that place. We are modeling ourselves
after NPEN, The National Parenting Education Network, associated with them having a listing on their website along with many other states who have become Parenting Education Networks.
We invite parents looking for educational resources and assistance of any kind to
contact any of the members listed in the directory at this time with the expectation
that soon, other resources will be available for contact.
We invite those who work with families and children to join with us as an individual member certified in a program that speaks to parenting and family management education or if you are a member of a service organization you are enthusiastically welcomed to join the movement as it spreads through the counties of SC from the low country to the upstate. We know there are many of you out there and we will warmly welcome you to the family. An application for membership is available on this site for downloading. In the meantime we welcome your input as to your interest and support.
