The Alliance National Parent Partnership Council is an advisory group to the Alliance and Children’s Trust Funds. Their work aligns with the Alliance’s strategic plan and priorities. They work 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 is committed to serving 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 have always been parent leaders who are familiar with the work of their states’ CTFs and who have experience and expertise that will be 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 Council are actively involved with the Alliance Committee structure and the co-chairs of the Council serve a term on the Alliance Board. Parents are an integral part of Alliance strategic planning, creating and refining resources and many other aspects of the work.

Who Are We?

An informal conversation about the way parents and caregivers help build the

Social and Emotional Competence of Children

 

Three Components

Download all 3 components of the Conversation Guide Heres!

DOWNLOAD

The Conversation Guide provides all of the resources needed to convene an informal but focused conversation.  It is designed to be co-led by a parent facilitator and an organizational partner — each with specific roles to play.  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.  Review the suggested time options and choose one that works best for your organization and the parents in the group.
  • 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.  The one-pager is available in color and greyscale for reproduction purposes.
  • Processing the Conversation – To harvest the collected data in a meaningful way, the parent facilitator and his/her organization partner should process what happened during the conversation immediately afterwards.

The Report-Out Form

  • The Portable Document Format (PDF) fillable form helps summarize the main ideas and themes that emerged from the discussion.  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 Accompanying 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 body of the Conversation Guide and can be used in  addition to or instead of the PowerPoint.
