The Parent Leadership Training Institute of Wyoming, or affectionately called PLTI, empowers parents to fulfill their hidden potential as community leaders. PLTI is centered on democracy, respect, dignity and a belief that when the tools of democracy are understood, parents will actively engage in civic life. Engaged parents improve their own lives and shape the future of all children. PLTI graduates take leadership roles in various fields and design and implement projects that benefit other families, schools and communities.

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 the National Parent Leadership Institute (NPLI), 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.
