Parent Education Program Mission and Goal

The mission of the Olympic College Parent Education Program is to value parents as primary caregivers and teachers, whose main focus is to develop healthy family relationships.  Our goal is to help parents strengthen family relationships, thereby strengthening the community as a whole.  The program addresses five major areas of family and community life: child development, relationships, parenting skills, leadership, and community.
