Are you a South Carolina resident and a parent/caregiver of a child with a disability or special healthcare need? Would you like to become a volunteer Support Parent and offer emotional support to other parents who have a child with a similar diagnosis as your child? If so, this interactive, virtual session could be for you! This four-hour evidence-based training will give you the skills to help educate, inspire, and empower parents and their children to live rich, fulfilling lives. As a volunteer of Family Connection, a Support Parent provides emotional support and information to families of individuals with disabilities or other special needs. Support Parents connect with other families by telephone and provide a safe listening environment and can be a wealth of information and resources to other families. All attendees who complete the training will receive a certificate as well as additional opportunities for skill development and volunteer time during their year commitment with Family Connection of SC.
*Participants must register and talk with Lisa Anderson, Statewide Parent to Parent Manager (803-995-9091), before joining day of training.
