Parent Project Course Enrollment Now Open

Fall 2018 APD Diversion Team First Day of School

Arcata Police Department’s Juvenile Diversion Program is pleased to announce that registration for the next Parent Project course session is open for enrollment. APD's Juvenile Diversion Program provides services to at-risk students and their families with help from Juvenile Diversion Counselors and a School Resource Officer who directly serve inside Northern Humboldt County Schools.


The Parent Project course sessions are parent-training classes designed for primary caregivers who want help improving their child’s school attendance and performance. The program also teaches intervention and prevention techniques to help improve communication with strong-willed teens, prevent drug-use and gang involvement and it puts caregivers in contact with local resources that offer additional family support.


Parent Project classes will take place once a week for an 11-week period from Thursday, October 18 to Thursday, January 24, 2019 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the McKinleyville High School Library located at 1300 Murray Road in McKinleyville. A $35 materials fee is required, but fee waivers are always available to those in need. Dinner, free child care and a teen study area will be provided at no cost to parents and caregivers while they attend the course. To register, visit parentproject.com or call 707-825-2538.


APD’s Juvenile Diversion Program, in partnership with Northern Humboldt Unified School District, has been made possible thanks to Humboldt County Measure Z funding. For more information about the Juvenile Diversion program, or to inquire about Parent Project courses, please call 707-825-2538.
