ON THIS PAGE: MEET THE COUNCIL | WHO ARE WE? | RESOURCES – RELATED PAGES: BPNNBFPP | TRAINING & TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

The Alliance National Parent Partnership Council (ANPPC) is an advisory group whose work aligns with the Alliance’s strategic plan and priorities. The ANPPC works to raise awareness about the Alliance and its mission and 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.

The Alliance created the ANPPC in 2007 and has continued to support its continued growth and development. Members of the ANPPC 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.

In the years since the creation of the ANPPC there has been significant learning about what it means to partner with parents. Members of the ANPPC are involved with the Alliance committee structure and the ANPPC co-chairs serve a term on the Alliance Board.

PARTNERSHIP ACADEMY

The Partnership Academy webinars are constructed for both organizational and parent partners. There will be some activities that include both partners, and other activities that will focus specifically on each one.

Please plan to join us for the third in this series of webinars on May 26, 2020 at NOON Central Standard Time.  Partnering With Fathers will explore questions like ‘Why is it important to partner with fathers? What are some tools and strategies that are a good fit?”   We are hoping to get this conversation going during this next scheduled webinar. Please invite any fathers you work with to join us.  Register for the webinar HERE.

Meet the Council Members

The seven 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.

Serving on the 2020 ANPPC are the following parent leaders:

• Arizona – Edward Casillas
• Colorado – LaShay Canady
• New Jersey – Margaret “Maggie” Fye
• New York – Kara Georgi, Co-Chair
• Oklahoma – Betty Hawkins-Emery
• Washington State – Victoria Hilt
• West Virginia – LaCrisha Rose, Co-Chair

Kara Georgi and LaCrisha Rose have served as co-chairs of the ANPPC for several years.

ANPPC members met with Casey Family Programs’ CEO William C. Bell at the Alliance’s annual membership meeting in November 2019. Above, left to right are Edward Casillas, Kara Georgi, Betty Hawkins-Emery, LaShay Canady, Dr. William Bell, Victoria Hilt, LaCrisha Rose and Maggie Fye. Below, parent leaders from the Birth Parent National Network (BPNN) and ANPPC members meet to learn how and discuss ways to generate and promote the “parent voice” on a 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.

To hear from the ANPPC in their own words about:

  • How they become a part of the Council
  • What the expectations and commitments are for Council members
  • Current Council members’ goals and aspirations for this work to partner with the Alliance

Parent Resources

The need2know resources are concise, just-in-time tools that target a special need, concern or issue. The ANPPC developed the Creating Parent Partnerships and PARENTS Acrostic tools to help guide meaningful conversations about the value of true partnerships with parents. The parent-to-parent infographics are a series of one-page tools that share parent strategies on how they use strength-based protective factors in their everyday lives.

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.
