Did you know
you need parenting information years ahead of your child’s experiences?
The Parent Engagement Network (PEN) started in 2001 as part of a call to action when the first Youth Risk Behavior Survey results showed high rates of drug/alcohol use and depression. Caring parents partnered with BVSD staff, and some community organizations. Later, the parents developed PEN to better respond to parent’s needs. We have continued to maintain a strong relationship with the district and a presence in the schools.
We also partners with numerous individuals, organizations and businesses that support youth and families. It is by collaborating with experts and thought leaders in the field that we are able to do the work we do.
