Fund a Bright Future

You invest in children that are healthy, safe and learning every time you make a gift to Parents as Teachers.

At the National Center we are laser focused, along with our affiliates, in a shared pursuit to ensure that every child in the countries we serve can develop, learn and grow to realize their full potential. We are champions for the development, education and health of children and with your help, we can continue to transform lives.

Without parents who are supported to give their best early learning experiences, far too many young children will be left without a solid foundation for success in school – and in life.

Your gift ensures parents have access to a trusted relationship with a trained, professional Parent Educator and research proves that can make all the difference in the world for kids and the adults they become!
