February 2023 is Parent Leadership Month | Prevent Child Abuse NC



February is National Parent Leadership Month. During the month of February, Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina (PCANC) invites you to join us in celebrating the important roles parents play in North Carolina communities.

Parent leaders represent the “parent voice” and are strong advocates for all families in their community. They provide input into family support program and community decisions and serve as role models and resources for other parents; thereby enhancing factors proven to prevent abuse and neglect.

Empowering parents to take leadership roles in their communities not only strengthens the individual parent and his or her family, it also improves outcomes for all children. Research shows that health, education, and family support organizations achieve more positive results and use resources more effectively when they partner with parents.

We invite you to join us in recognizing Parent Leadership Month and celebrate the contributions of Parent Leaders within your North Carolina community. Download resources from our Parent Leadership Month toolkit and share the news with your networks!
