Active Parenting of Teens: Teens in Action
Teens in Action is designed for teens ages 11–16.
Teens in Action is typically delivered in six weekly 2-hour sessions. A class leader delivers the program to groups of teens. Program content can be implemented flexibly, including delivering only the first four sessions or delivering the first three or four sessions as a unit with remaining sessions scheduled as a follow-up course.
Recommended Locations/Delivery Settings
Teens in Action is delivered in school settings or community-based organizations. Class leaders typically conduct sessions in person, though virtual delivery options are available.
Education, Certifications and Training
Implementing organizations may set educational requirements for class leaders. Formal training is not required, though class leader training workshops are available and consist of a 1-day, 7-hour live training webinar or a self-study class with video, reading, and discussion tools.
Class leaders who have completed the training workshop can complete a formal certification process, though certification is not required to deliver the program. To become certified, a class leader must lead an Active Parenting class, administer class participant evaluation forms, complete a self-evaluation form, and send materials to the developer for approval.
