Earn a Parent Mentor Certificate

More Edmonds Community College videos

Parent Mentors are caring individuals who volunteer to help newcomer and minority families feel at home in our schools. They are Natural Leaders who work in schools, Head Start, and state early childhood education and assistance programs to provide a bridge between home and schools. They help families adjust to a new system, language, and culture. They are often bilingual and they are always bicultural.

Add to your experience helping families adjust to a new country or a new community. Gain the skills required to become a parent mentor, a family support worker, or a family advocate for any family. Develop your talent to help your community and your career.

While enrolled in the Parent Mentor certificate program, you’ll receive extra support.
