The Child Parent Institute is seeking volunteers for our creative arts program. Child Parent Institute (CPI), formerly California Parenting Institute, is a parent education and children’s mental health agency serving families throughout Sonoma County since 1978. CPI’s mission is to end child abuse and strengthen the health of children, parents, and families.
CPI is excited to expand our services to feature the creative arts. Expanding access to the arts is an upstream investment that aims to prevent or reduce many of the negative effects of poverty on children and youth through early arts engagement that yields lifelong results.
Last October, the Center for Creative Arts, an organization that provides art therapy using a strengths-based approach, joined CPI to continue and extend this programming in schools and other community settings, including low-income housing sites and a Santa Rosa homeless shelter. Art therapists create and lead small groups through activities designed to increase self-esteem and self-expression, while improving social and coping skills. Art therapy through CPI is currently offered in after-school small groups at five schools in Rohnert Park and Santa Rosa.
Volunteers are an integral part of our creative arts team. The opportunity to assist in art therapy groups offers experience working directly with children while observing and collaborating with an art therapist to facilitate group activities. The demand for this program is growing; interested volunteers may have the opportunity to complete supervised art therapy internship hours.
In addition to growing the number of sites and participants in the art therapy program, CPI is expanding our offerings to include a variety of creative arts, such as theatre, movement, creative writing, storytelling, and music. Through Chalkboard Players, a troupe comprised of performing artists and instructors, CPI serves children, youth, and families through after-school creative arts programs, in-school performances and workshops, parent and family engagement activities, and community outreach and education.
CPI’s approach to the creative arts uses both licensed mental health/art therapists and working artists and performers to deliver programming that ranges from therapeutic to expressive, educational, and recreational. We’re currently exploring the integration of the creative arts throughout our wide array of parent education and children’s mental health services.
Participation in the arts builds empathy, boosts academic achievement to help narrow the gap created by income disparity, and strengthens the social and emotional development of participating students. The impact extends beyond benefiting direct participants to positively transform parents, families, and communities. The arts increase parent engagement in schools, broaden parents’ understanding of their children, and provide opportunities for social connections. Several of these factors have been proven to help reduce the risk of child abuse and neglect while strengthening families and communities.
To explore volunteer opportunities in the creative arts at Child Parent Institute, or to discuss how a creative arts program could benefit your school, community group, or event, please contact Creative Arts Director Joy Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org or707.585.6108 x1121. -------------------------
