Parent to Kid Connection (PKC) Program

FREE Workshops from September 2023 through June 2024

Every 2nd Tuesday of the Month starting in October

This initiative, aims to address the needs of parents and children within our communities through parent and child health coaching and museum artist workshops.

By partnering with organizations across Broward, PKC will host 10 free monthly parent and child group sessions at YAA. These sessions explore a unique blend of creative play, art-making, and open dialogue, facilitated by partnering early childhood experts and women artists. These artists and mothers will engage participants creatively in their artistic practice and stories of how motherhood has influenced their body of work. The program focuses on fostering healthy parenting skills, promoting positive mental health practices, encouraging creative approaches to raising families, enhancing communication skills between parents and children, and building lasting community bonds.

Food will be Provided at all workshops
