PEP is a nonprofit organization, founded in Montgomery County, Md., in 1982 with the mission of providing parents with the support and training they need to raise children who are confident, capable and responsible.
PEP offers classes and workshops that teach practical parenting skills geared to each stage of a child’s development – whether parents are looking for new parenting techniques or are faced with serious parenting concerns. With four seasonal class schedules a year, classes are offered throughout Montgomery County, as well as in Washington, DC and Northern Virginia and are open to all parents, guardians, caregivers, grandparents or other interested adults. PEP’s Noted Author Series brings a nationally known parenting expert to the area each fall. PEP also offers programs for couples, as well as for children, including a Babysitter training class, Summer Friendship Day Camps, and an annual Can Do Kids Fair for children ages 4 through 10 and their parents.
