Parent Educator

Description

The True To Life Foundation Life of A Child
Program incorporates the Parents as Teachers (PAT)* Foundational Curriculum
Model (TTL/LOC) to provide home visits, screenings, group meetings, and resource
connections designed to maximize the impact of parents with children ages zero
to three. TTL/LOC Program screenings and assessments facilitate the provision
and implementation of support needed to promote successful family achievement
throughout the TTL/LOC Program.

Parent Educators/Home Visitors are responsible
for guiding each family through individualized service plans, home visits and
assessments. TTL/LOC Parent Educators/Home Visitors work with at risk
communities throughout the city of Chicago to help families identify child
developmental objectives. In addition to working as a home visitor, parent
educators will also support teen participants in our mentoring program. Mentors
provide one on one and group interaction activities to support youth with
building positive relationships, healthy communication skills, self-awareness
activities, goal identification and planning and positive thinking ideas to
shift and or enhance thinking and behavior.

* Parent Educators work Monday – Friday
8:30-4:30… After 30 days it will go to a hybrid schedule of 2 ½ days in the

*As defined by the PAT National Center,
Parents as Teachers is the overarching program philosophy of providing parents,
throughout pregnancy until their child enters kindergarten, with child
development knowledge and parenting support.
