In our Parent Conference, we aim to empower parents with up-to-date research and tools that will equip them to effectively communicate with the young people in their lives. Our standard parent presentation format is a 5 hour conference covering our 4 main topics. Each presentation is fully customizable to meet the individual needs of each school or organization.
This program is ideal for middle & high schools, youth groups & churches, student clubs & organizations, detention centers, and any other young adult or parent audiences.
EmpowerEd is FREE! Options Health is happy to offer EmpowerEd at no cost to the community, but donations are always welcome.
EmpowerEd is available to any young adult audience! The EmpowerEd curriculum is designed for 6th-12th grade students, so it would be great for youth groups & churches, student clubs & community youth programs, juvenile detention centers, and any other youth related organizations.
Each of the 5 lessons are between 30-35 minutes, along with discussion questions and fun activities. Our entire program is fully customizable though, so we can work with you to make a presentation series just right for your students!
