Glenbard Parent Series
The Glenbard Parent Series has been an active community partner since 1990. Gilda Ross, the Glenbard Student and Community Projects Coordinator is a creative and resourceful leader who has gradually built a small endeavor- hosting local parents- to an expansive program with outreach open to all of Dupage County.
GPS challenges parents to become proactive and informed by hosting workshops and speakers on a variety of topics affecting our youth as they mature to adulthood and navigate a complicated world. It has become a model for parent engagement with local school districts seeking to replicate its successes.
GPS is a timely, research-based, data driven series that seeks to shine a light on some of the tough issues facing our youth and parents (i.e. substance abuse, etc.), while finding strategies and solutions together to address them.
GPS is a member of and partners with- the Dupage County Prevention Leadership Team (substance abuse prevention coalition) of which the Township is an active member and partner as well.
The Downers Grove Township Division of Human Services is proud to recommend this wonderful program and series to our parents and youth. Programs are FREE and open to the public.
