HomeNEC Family Center

The NEC Family Center provides educational programs that offer the highest quality of learning opportunities for families, educators and others who impact the lives of children and teens.


Workshops provide an opportunity for parents, grandparents, and other family members to become knowledgeable in areas that relate to their child. The workshops are facilitated by expert speakers from within our community. Workshops offer a place where families can meet other families with similar interests. Workshops are free or have a minimal fee. All workshops are open to the public. Professionals are welcome.


Parent support groups are offered through the collaboration of the Parent/Professional Advocacy League (PAL) and focus on supporting parents and grandparents with behaviorally challenging children. Groups are facilitated by a professional and based on peer support. The groups are held monthly in the Family and Professional Learning Center at Northshore Education Consortium. Groups are confidential, free and open to the public.


    For families and professionals. Open to the public. Free.
