The North Andover Parent Resource Network was created to support parents and caregivers in the mental health arena by providing relevant speakers, discussion groups and resources. Evidence shows that social-emotional skills positively affect student academic outcomes. While students learn these skills in the schools, our goal is to extend this learning to the home.
Originally created by a group of parents in 2009, the group provided support to both the community’s R.A.I.S.E. initiative and the Building Respectful Communities (BRC) committee. While the group became inactive for a few years, it has recently been revived. It’s especially relevant today as our students recover from a year affected by the pandemic in a myriad of ways, both physically and emotionally.
Today, we are working in collaboration with the Youth Center and the BRC committee. In the coming year, we hope to join forces with the school’s PTOs, and other area groups, to bring relevant speakers to town and host discussion groups.
Events are free of charge and open to all North Andover families. We rely on donations to run our programs. If you or your business is interested in becoming a sponsor, please email NAParentResourceNetwork@gmail.com
