    Parents' Night Out is a site- and community-based program that provides children and teens with events that provide them with the opportunity to interact with their peers. In the meantime, parents and guardians are afforded time for themselves.
     
    This form is only for families who have already pre-registered with Advancing Opportunities. If you are interested in participating in Parents' Night Out, please contact Jennifer Palmer, at jpalmer@advopps.org.
