The Virginia Cooperative Extension Parent Education Program Team’s mission is to provide families in the community with parent education classes resulting in transformed family relationships and stability. The need for these classes did not go away with the pandemic. In fact, it may have made the necessity greater as parenting has become tougher.
Parent Education virtual classes and discussion groups are facilitated by a seasoned staff of instructors and volunteers. VCE does realize that a virtual learning experience may not be ideal for everyone or even logistically possible. In-person classes will be available as soon as VCE can offer them safely. This virtual option allows VCEo reach those that may have had barriers to attending an in-person class in the past.
