Workshop to help parents become better career coaches

The Richmond District Parents Association is once again sponsoring the Parents as Career Coaches Workshop.

The workshop will be held at R.C. Palmer Secondary School on Jan. 28 and Feb. 4 at 6:30 p.m.

Parents as Career Coaches is a program that helps parents become more effective career development allies for their children.

They are introduced to the concept of coaching, an appropriate role they can assume when guiding and supporting their children’s career journeys. And finally, they are given practical tools and strategies to help them become better career coaches for their youth.

The presenter is Marion Haythorne of Capilano University.

The workshop is especially helpful to parents of high school students but any Richmond parent is welcome to attend.
