The 2nd Annual Gala supporting COPE 24 in their mission to equip young adults with skills to become better parents than previous generations. It is the belief of this organization that very little time is devoted to preparing young adults for what to expect when bringing home a baby. If one has been brought up in an environment that is emotionally unhealthy and/or dysfunctional, with regard to child rearing, those are the very skills they may ultimately possess.

COPE24, Changing Our Parenting Experience, is committed to creating reality-based videos and written products that have proven to be very effective in grabbing the attention of students across the country. Our board of directors has asked us to offer an Adopt-A-School Program to all communities. Where budgets are tight or non-existent we want FACS teachers to have an avenue that would make our material available to them.

Donate the COPE24 Parenting Skill Program and The Life Sentence dvd to a school of your choice now.

 Mission: To significantly reduce incidences of child abuse and neglect

Methodology: Educating all youth on the stresses and responsibility of parenting.

Let’s Stop the Cycle of Child Abuse With Education That Makes an Impact

COPE24 has put together, with input from the Missouri Department of Education, a 2-week Parenting Skills Program to be presented in classrooms around the nation. Click Here to see clips of each video.

Can you image the impact this program, with the inclusions of a 2-week curriculum, will have in reducing incidents of poor parenting among our families in Missouri as well as the United States? We may never know the impact COPE24 will have on changing behavior, but it is the risk and fortitude that makes it a worthwhile endeavor.
