Parenting Educators’ Learning Cafe Webinars

Here are just some of the benefits of our monthly webinar series: 

  • Webinars are FREE with NPEN membership.
  • Each one is tailored specifically to parenting education professionals (rather than parents), focusing on topics related to your work supporting families. 
  • The interactive format provides an opportunity to connect with other professionals in the field. 
  • Participation certificates are available to submit to professional licensing boards for CEUs.
  • NPEN members are encouraged to share their expertise as a webinar presenter. 
  • Ideas for webinar topics are generated by NPEN members.

FREE for NPEN members!

Because many organizations charge for webinars, attending just one or two webinars will actually pay for itself. And, you’ll get all the additional benefits of being an NPEN member, as well!

The National Parenting Education Network (NPEN) operates through the lens of equity and justice. We know the importance of social justice (racial, economic, educational, health, housing, employment, criminal, and environmental), diversity, equity, inclusion, access, and belonging within the parenting education field and our organization. We demonstrate our commitment to these realities by ensuring that our membership and leadership roles are open to parenting professionals of all ethnicities, socio-economic statuses, ages, abilities, religions, sexual orientations, nationalities, genders, and marital statuses.  

Children learn about a just society through the words and actions of their parents, caregivers, and others.  We assert that our anti-racism and anti-oppression parenting education and family advocacy work allows everyone to be heard and supported. Our work includes promoting diverse parenting educators and parenting education in our media, webinars, member communications, leadership opportunities, networking, conferences, trainings, and advocacy. By keeping racial justice, diversity, equity, inclusion, access, and belonging at the forefront, we create an environment within NPEN that supports parenting educators, parents, and caregivers, thereby, encouraging children’s healthy growth and development.
