Wyoming’s Maternal and Child Health Unit of the Department of Health has identified a curriculum that offers empowerment and civics skills to support parents and families in making desired changes for children.

The curriculum, provided by Connecticut’s Parent Leadership Training Institute (PLTI), is an evidence based curriculum with proven positive outcomes for children, families, and the community.

This 20-week class is designed to bolster family involvement and leadership skills, while promoting the lifelong health, safety and learning of children. The cornerstones of the program are respect, validation and a belief that when the tools of democracy are understood, the public will become active participants in communities.
