Career Highways Offers ParenTeach Innovative Course Teaching Vital Skills for Caregiver
Chicago, IL, March 20, 2024 --( ParenTeach Institute, a charitable organization focused on evidence-based, positive parenting and caregiver education, is partnering with Career Highways, featuring their online parenting and caregiving courses on the Career Highways platform to build parenting and caregiving skills to create a healthier, safer and more productive society.

Career Highways offers a lifetime set of career development tools and content, at no cost for students and job seekers. Career Highways’ unique career visualization, a “Career Highway,” uses AI to identify and personalize career paths and provides a career map with step-by-step guidance including training, education, certifications, programs, jobs, and multiple AI career routes to career success. Career Highways partners with thousands of K-12 schools, educational providers, non-profits, and workforce development organizations.

ParentABLE, a 6.5 hour course designed for high school students interested in mastering evidence-based caregiving competencies, builds on the success of Parenting Fundamentals, a parenting education program founded in 1996. The ParentABLE course includes information about the effects of unintentional harmful caregiving, the consequences of adverse childhood experiences, the power of resilience, and positive caregiving competencies. It also aims to create a level of comfort for those seeking future parenting and caregiving resources and increase students' Social Emotional Learning Competencies.

Katharine Bensinger, CEO and Founder of ParenTeach Institute, said, “To be able to feature our content on the Career Highways platform and reach such a large and growing audience was exactly what we needed to expand our impact. By reaching youth early in their education, we equip them with positive parenting and caregiving practices that they otherwise may never be exposed to.”

According to Harvard Graduate School of Education, ParenTeach Institute's evaluation partner, after taking ParentABLE students reported they received the tools needed to positively care give, while also learning the importance of the caregiver's role in child development.
