Our Parent Gym ambassadors are engaging, inspiring and passionate about supporting parents to help their kids thrive. They are the friendly face of Parent Gym for parents who want to know more about the programme.
We believe that all parents can benefit from meeting other parents in their community, sharing stories, refreshing their knowledge and getting new ideas to try out at home. As a Parent Gym ambassador, you will play a vital role in making sure parents know about the programmes available near them and the benefits for themselves and their children.
Parent Gym ambassadors visit our partner schools and centres to chat to parents and help to make the idea of parenting support as normal as attending an antenatal class. They speak to parents in the playground, give out flyers, attend promotion events and go along to coffee mornings. Wherever they go they use their enthusiasm and people skills to enthuse parents, share their stories and make parenting support accessible to everyone
The programme allows parents the fantastic chance to make connections and establish a bonding network, something which I feel no other programme would allow.
Over my first three terms I very quickly realised that the Parent Gym programme makes a massive difference; I've had laughter, tears and parents saying that their lives have been changed. It's been a wonderful privilege to be able to make a difference to people and to broaden my mind and stretch my skills. A whole new career has opened up for me as a result so joining Parent Gym turned out to be one of the best decisions I've ever made!
