What is Parker’s Project?
Parker’s Project is about engaging youth, while collecting information about parenting experiences of young parents.
Parker’s Project was inspired by Baby Parker. On July 28th 2005, the body of a newborn baby boy was found in a Brantford Park. In an anonymous letter sent to police, the young mother indicated she didn’t know where to turn for assistance and was too scared to approach anyone she knew about her situation. Parker’s Project was born to empower parents to become change makers in their community. Parker’s Project is a parent-led group with the goals to activate youth voices, raise community awareness and to further the understanding of maternity and post-partum parenting needs of the parents in Brant.
