One of the many programs that Walden offers is a 16-week parenting course for parents between the ages of 13 and 24. As part of Walden’s FAMILY (Fathers and Mothers who are Inspired, Loving, and Young) program, the parenting classes seek to assist individuals and couples with children under the age of 5. The program helps participants develop skills crucial to healthy parenting, including self-awareness, self-esteem, empathy, and good communication. To increase accessibility, the classes are held at various schools and community centers throughout San Bernardino County. Graduates of the 16-week course receive child- and baby-care items from Walden Family Services.
