Youth Assistance offers a variety of programs all aimed at improving communication between parents and their children, understanding child development, and enhancing parenting skills. By offering a variety of programs, families can choose the program that meets their needs at the time, and can continue to attend sessions as their children grow and change, presenting new issues that need to be addressed. These programs are frequently co-sponsored by other community groups, libraries and/or the local schools.

Oakland County has a full calendar of parenting classes available throughout the year.
