Youth and Families

Smart Parenting

Parenting can be a challenge, and we are here to help. The Rye Youth Council facilitates expert-led educational discussions, seminars and workshops for parents to learn proven, effective strategies for nurturing connection and resilience.​


InSync Parent Education extends what is being taught in school to parents to help support and reinforce the social and emotional learnings at home. In Sync Parent Education: 

  • Enables parents to extend and reinforce the social and emotional skills being taught by RYC youth educators in schools
  • Provides practical application of social and emotional concepts and competencies that are introduced  through programming by our community collaborators, such as Heard in Rye.
