Parent Project®

Parent Project is the only program of its kind in the Nation.  It focuses on adolescent behaviors, and has grown to become the largest mandated Juvenile diversion program in the country. Parent Project addresses critical issues parents face and offers solutions to their questions.

The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office is committed to providing this highly effective program that is affordable for every parent.  Classes are offered in English, Spanish and Vietnamese.

Since 2008, nearly 1,800 parents in Santa Clara County have participated in the 12-week course. Unlike any other program, this unique series is specifically designed to address high-risk behaviors and strong-willed youth.

How is this program different? It was created by parents. The Parent Project curriculum was developed by a psychologist, an educator and a police officer along with over 100,000 parents across the nation to best meet the needs of today’s parents.

Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Parent Project Program has over 40 trained facilitators and has plans to expand by offering more classes throughout Santa Clara County. We encourage the public to contact the Parent Project for a list of classes being offered.
