Parent Chats: Sharing Wisdom

  • CONNECT with other parents
  • SHARE what has worked for you, what you struggle with
  • BUILD a community of support

All parents talk about parenting. It is our way of sharing our experiences, getting or giving advice, and reaching out to others for support. Parents enjoy sharing their children’s accomplishments, laughing about silly things they say, or venting about behaviors. It is something that most of us do naturally.

The Partnership believes that, when parents share wisdom with one another, we all become better parents. 

That is why we are inviting parents to come together for Parent Chats.

How do Parent Chats work?

Youth Entrepreneur Showcase

As part of the Out of School Time Conference, we’re excited to offer young people an opportunity to share information about their business.

We would like to invite youth to join us on Saturday, October 15 from 11:30am-1:00pm at Kenmore Middle School to showcase your services or products to over 250 conference attendees.

The Out of School Time Conference is an annual training event for staff who run afterschool programs, parents or other adults who work with young people outside of school times. This year’s theme is Youth Voice: Lean in and Listen.

Sign up as an Exhibitor for the Youth Entrepreneur Showcase

Youth should be ready to tell people about their product, service, or other business ideas. We’ll provide a table and chairs. Entrepreneurs are also welcome to enjoy lunch. The first 20 to sign up will also get a conference t-shirt. Pre-registration is required; use this sign up link for the Youth Entrepreneur Showcase.

Do you know other youth entrepreneurs in Arlington? Please let them know about this!
