What We’re About
Padres Informados Jovenes Preparados is a culturally-sensitive parenting program developed using Community-Based Participatory Research. It aims to improve parenting skills and parent-youth relationships to prevent smoking and other substance use among Latino youth. The intervention is delivered in a group format and includes eight parent and four youth weekly sessions. Because it was developed using active community engagement, the program highlights values relevant for Latinos, such as family orientation, trust, and respect.
