Parent Educator Resource Center

The PERC is housed inside the Community Classroom Project, a community learning center on the Space of Mind campus in Delray Beach. This “welcome center” of sorts offers guidance through consultations, a lending library, workshops, advocacy training, professional development and inspiring and educational events, all intended to elevate the conversations communities are having around education.


This innovative and collaborative “think tank” has five primary initiatives:

We Support

We support teachers, parents and administrators in every school – regardless of financial need – with resources to implement effective Social Emotional & Life Skill-Building strategies in K-12 classrooms.

We Connect

We connect families with advocacy training, educational resources, lectures, programs and professionals to create more solutions and less stigma around mental health and more opportunities for family engagement.

We Educate

We educate through lectures, office hours and special events devoted to mental health, behavior, academics, learning differences and other relatable topics suggested by our network of parents, educators, community leaders and, of course, students.

We Unite

We unite educators and other family service providers through Professional Development Programs and Continuing Education Courses, as well as host regular events to help strengthen this collaborative community.

We Advocate

We advocate by inspiring community members to use their voice through civic participation and educating parents about policies affecting their families and how to advocate individually at home and school for their children.
