The Orange County Parent Child Center supports adolescents and young parents seeking to complete their education, acquire relevant and desirable employment skills, and enhance life and parenting skills.

We plan to begin our FLT program as soon as COVID restrictions permit. 

Services Available to FLT Participants:

Early Education Program: On-site care and education program for children ages six weeks to three years designed to nurture and inspire children while their parents work on achieving their own goals.

Parenting Classes: Experienced educators and parents cover topics from discipline to the importance of reading to developmental milestones in ongoing parenting classes that meet you where you are as a parent.

Academic Tutoring (in collaboration with Central VT Adult Basic Education): Individualized assistance to help you meet your own personal educational goals whether it’s completing the requirements for High School graduation through the Vermont High School Completion Program, preparing for the GED, or pursuing secondary education, career, and vocational training.

Career Exploration: Guidance in researching and pursuing career options that suit your skills and ambitions, including resume writing, interviewing skills, and job retention strategies.

On-Site Internships: Real-life work experience in our center’s food service program, early education program, and administrative offices

Peer Support: An opportunity for young parents and mentors to talk openly about issues and concerns of parenting, self-esteem, and personal growth.

Health and Nutrition Classes: A chance to explore relevant topics from healthy recipes to childhood vaccination schedules with our on-site nurse.

If you or someone you know could benefit from help on your journey toward success and self-sufficiency, contact OCPCC today.

We can help design a program that meets you where you are and builds a path to where you want to be in the future.
