The Women’s Centre of Jamaica Foundation (WCJF) launched its inaugural Transformational Parenting; Reshaping Families Initiative at the Adolescent Mothers’ Parenting Conference on April 16, 2019 at the Jamaica Conference Centre.
The conference forms part of the Transformational Parenting; Reshaping Families Parenting Initiative which seeks to prepare adolescent mothers to be transformational parents. The initiative which began in March 2019 with a 12 weeks Parenting Course, continues with a Residential Training Course for the caregivers of the adolescent mothers, and will culminate with a Parenting Lecture scheduled for November 2019. The Initiative is co-sponsored by UNICEF Jamaica and the Americans Friends of Jamaica with special donation from Best Dress Chicken, Kirk Distributors, and Carimed.
