The ANPPC is a national model for effectively partnering with parents and integrating the powerful role of parent leaders in state children’s trust funds and community-based programs.

The Alliance National Parent Partnership Council (ANPPC) is an advisory group whose work aligns with the Alliance’s strategic plan and priorities. The ANPPC raises awareness about the Alliance and its mission to strengthen all parents and communities from a prevention point of view. The Alliance and the Council serve as a national model for effectively partnering with parents and expanding and integrating the powerful role of parent leaders in state children’s trust and prevention funds and community-based programs. Members of the ANPPC are involved with the Alliance committee structure and the ANPPC co-chairs serve a term on the Alliance Board.

The Alliance created the ANPPC in 2007 and continues to support its growth and development. ANPPC members are parent leaders who are familiar with the work of their states’ CTFs and who have experience and expertise that are helpful on the national level.

Meet the Council Members

The members of the Alliance National Parent Partnership Council (ANPPC) come from across the nation. They were nominated by their state children’s trust funds to serve on the council. They are familiar with the work of their states’ CTFs and have experience and expertise that is helpful at the national level.

Who Are We?

The ANPPC is a group of parent leaders who work in a small collective virtual environment to support and align our work with the Alliance’s strategic plan. We work to raise awareness about the Alliance’s prevention resources that strengthen all families and communities.

Resources


PARENT RESOURCES

The need2know resources are concise, just-in-time tools that target a special need, concern or issue.
Infographics

The parent-to-parent infographics are a series of tools that share parent strategies on how they use strength-based protective factors in their everyday lives. The back of each infographic shows how each protective factor fits within the framework – how they all work together to help make families strong! Also, featured on the flipside is how parent groups across the country have defined the protective factor.

Tools

The ANPPC developed the Creating Parent Partnerships and PARENTS Acrostic tools to help guide meaningful conversations about the value of true partnerships with parents.

CONVERSATION GUIDE

An informal conversation about the way parents and caregivers help build the Social and Emotional Competence of Children.
The Conversation Guide provides all of the resources needed to convene an informal and focused conversation. It is designed to be co-led by a parent facilitator and an organizational partner. The 5 questions that form the basis for the discussion relate to the 5 Everyday Actions that are known to build the Social and Emotional Competence of Children. The power of the conversation is that local conversations are part of a national conversation – with the essential tools to report data from the conversation at a national level.

This suite of materials includes:

The Conversation Guide

  • Getting Ready for the Conversation – Includes ideas for planning, organization and tips for facilitating the conversation.
  • Time Plan – The conversation is flexible and can be adapted to your needs.
  • The Conversation – A scripted guide for discussing the questions designed to help parents share concrete examples of the everyday actions they are taking to build this protective factor.
  • Key Points and Reminders – A one-page tool that reminds parent participants of the questions, definitions and key points during the course of the conversation. This page is available in color and greyscale for reproduction purposes.
  • Processing the Conversation – To harvest the collected data, the parent facilitator and his/her organization partner should process what happened during the conversation immediately afterwards.

The Report-Out Form

  • The fillable PDF form summarizes the main ideas and themes that emerged from the conversation. The final step is to submit by email the fillable form to the Alliance to be combined with data from conversations happening across the country.

The PowerPoint

  • The use of the PowerPoint is optional and can serve to remind parent participants of the questions, definitions and key points during the course of the conversation. An optional one-page tool is included in the Conversation Guide and can be used in addition to or instead of the PowerPoint.

SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGNS

Protective Factors Help Families in Times of Need

To navigate the evolving COVID-19 crisis, the Alliance National Parent Partnership Council (ANPPC) created images and messages to help us focus our energies on our families and loved ones. There is much unknown ahead of us, and we can use the protective factors to help us move forward.

Parents and Families as HEROES

For February, which is National Parent Leadership Month, the ANPPC created a HERO – Healthy Empowering Response to Opportunity – social media campaign. This HERO campaign was so popular that the ANPPC expanded it for National Child Abuse Prevention Month, which is in April. The ANPPC created toolkits to promote healthy social and emotional development of families. Both of the HERO campaigns celebrate parents and families as heroes.

Click on the links below to see the ANPPC’s social media campaigns. Feel free to use and adapt the images and resources to your needs.

Presentation on the HERO campaigns

The two HERO social media campaigns were the focus of a presentation at the virtual Prevent Child Abuse America (PCAA) national conference in August. Victoria Hilt, ANPPC co-chair, and Kara Georgi, former ANPPC co-chair who is an Alliance Parent Partnership Associate, shared how the ANPPC developed the HERO campaigns and ways to use them.
