Naugatuck Parent Leadership Training Institute

Virtual Class of 2021 

Helping parents who care become parents who lead.


It's amazing what one parent can do!

Naugatuck's Parent Leadership Training Institute Team in partnership with CT Partnership for Children Inc. is pleased to announce Naugatuck's 5th Class of Parent Leadership Training Institute (PLTI) where in-depth leadership training will be offered to 20-25 selected participants.

Naugatuck PLTI is looking for parents, grandparents, guardians, or other adults wishing to improve the lives of children, families, and communities to join the 2021 PLTI program beginning this January in a hybrid setting.

Participants will become advocates for children through:
  • A Saturday community-building retreat
  • A 10-week instructional course on community and personal development
  • A 10-week civics course on politics, policy, and media
  • A written community impact project

Child Leadership Training Institute

Children of PLTI participants ages 4-12 may participate in the Children Leadership Training Institute (CLTI) - a literacy-based curriculum that parallels PLTI's weekly topics. Participating children get a new book every week!

Candidates will be selected from a pool of diverse applicants. The Institute is free; your contribution is your time and commitment.

The training will be offered in a virtual model (potentially hybrid based upon covid-19 local health restrictions) in the evenings, with an orientation on Jan. 19, an in-person/virtual retreat on Saturday, Jan. 23 from 8:30-4:30 p.m., and classes continuing on Tuesday evenings for 20 weeks until June. Class is from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., beginning with networking and social time from 5:30-6 p.m. The training will be offered only in English.
