Parent Educator Network Indiana (PENI)

Parent Educator Network Indiana (PENI)


Empowering parent educators to uplift the families they serve.

PENI was established to support parent educators in advancing the welfare of Indiana children, youth, and families through ongoing continuing education & learning, support, and networking.


We believe that by strengthening and sharing our own knowledge base, we are better able to provide developmentally- and culturally-relevant training and support to the families we serve.

PENI Events

We encourage you to enhance your skills in this profession on an ongoing basis.

Annually, PENI provides its members and the community-at-large with access to programming aimed at expanding their knowledge about the issues relevant to effective and responsible parenting, as well as on the techniques for serving urban and at-risk families more effectively. In addition, members are also provided with opportunities to acquire strategies to help them re-vitalize and stay on-course in an often hectic and stressful field. CLICK HERE to learn more…
