Greater Life of Fayetteville is hosting a monthly program aimed to produce positive outcomes for parents and their children. The next workshop is Feb. 23.
The vision of Greater Life of Fayetteville is to provide a community that guides and assesses the needs of program participants. GLOF commits to supporting and encouraging positive interactions with school officials, teachers, adult volunteers and staff, through youth mentoring programs.
Along with programs for kids, GLOF also has programs and supportive tools for parents. GLOF’s parent programs are designed to help parents navigate educational, community and family dynamics. Parents also have the chance to acquire basic financial information/classes.
These programs are free to the community.
The upcoming workshop, which is parents only, will target finances. According to Georgeanna Pinckney, president and CEO of GLOF, this session will give parents insight on where their financial positions are and how they want to move forward.
William Neill, author and financial coach, will be speaking at this workshop to discuss the do’s and don’ts of controlling your personal finances. This session will be held on Feb. 23 at 600 Orange St. in Fayetteville from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m.
At the end of the monthly workshop, there will be a celebration for the parents who completed their monthly goal. Parents will receive a graduation certificate, gifts and be able to share their success story.
“What this does is it gives support from one another to see how they reach their goals. To some, it is like a community family support group because your idea may help someone else meet their goal or vice versa,” said Pinckney.
Other workshops will be held in March, April and May. For more information about the parent workshops, visit www.greaterlifeoffayetteville.org or call 910-364-9531.
