Resilience-Building Parenting Curriculum
Improve parenting skills with Your Journey Together (YJT), a research-based, trauma-informed curriculum that helps to build resilience in vulnerable children and their families.
What is Your Journey Together?
Your Journey Together (YJT) is a strength-based curriculum designed to promote the social and emotional well-being and resilience of vulnerable children and their families. The YJT curriculum focuses on empowering parents to promote safe, trusting and healing environments – all key elements of a trauma-sensitive program. While YJT is designed for families with young children – infants, toddlers, preschoolers – many of the concepts apply to families with children of all ages.
