Parents as Partners serves at-risk children through mentoring and support and education for their parents. Primary strategies include training and supporting parents and caregivers to be the primary nurturing adult in their child’s life as well as matching children with a screened and trained adult mentor. Using a 4:1 Relationship Model, this project works to connect and engage four important and supportive adults in a child’s life beginning with the parent and mentor, school/teacher and BBBSEMO program staff. Going beyond the mentoring, BBBSEMO prioritizes parent education and support, supporting services and resources and referrals. Project service area includes St. Louis city and county, St. Charles, Cape Girardeau, and Jefferson counties.
