It’s time to receive recognition for your work with parents! The process of applying for and the awarding of the NYSPEP Parenting Educator Credential assesses and acknowledges your experience, knowledge and expertise in parenting education giving your work visibility and credibility. You can apply for the Credential regardless of your work setting or job title; it is for all those who support families and facilitate the growth and development of parents through support and education. The next NYSPEP Parenting Educator Credential application deadline is January 31, 2023.

You can begin work on your application with the support of a mentor, either in a small group or one-on-one. Small groups of parenting educators meet to work together to develop their application for NYSPEP Parenting Educator Credential.  The group will be guided and facilitated by an experienced Credentialed Parenting Educator who can answer your questions and offer support. You will also meet other parenting educators, building a network of peers who can share information and resources.  Group participation is free to all credential applicants.

NYSPEP is currently offering a limited number of partial scholarships to credential applicants.  Scholarships are available on a first-come-first-served basis for $100 toward the $300 application fee for Credentialed Parenting Educator and $50 toward the $150 Credentialed Resource Associate.

Contact Judy Wolf, Acting Credential Coordinator, at Credential@nyspep.org for more information and to begin the application process.


Supervision Matters: Disrupting Microaggressions within Organizations workshop

Description: In the fall of 2020, a time of uncertainty and heightened racial violence within our communities, human service agency frontline workers from five NYC-based organizations participated in a study exploring whether organizational factors such as organizational culture and leadership style were related to the frequency of workplace racial microaggressions. Importantly the study also explored whether supervision moderated workplace racial microaggressions.  Come learn about the findings from this doctoral study, brainstorm ways to bring some of these ideas to your practice, and hear about implications for practice, policy, and future research.
