Since 2009 the International Parenting & Health Institute has been at the forefront of parenting and health education, offering comprehensive cutting-edge training preparation and support for professionals who are passionate and dedicated to helping adults and children overcome various health and lifestyle challenges. Our commitment and devotion to positively transforming lives and evolving humanity has led us to expand our holistic education to 59 countries worldwide in 10 different languages.
Your financial investment with us, has not only supported your professional growth while sustaining the operations and management of IPHI, but it has also gone into research development and advocacy work which we are now taking to a whole new level. In an effort to continue making a tremendous impact, further our vision and mission, ensure financial transparency and make our education more widely available to underserved communities, we are officially transitioning to a nonprofit organization as of January 2023!
International Parenting & Health Institute aims to offer support and education to families during pregnancy, postpartum and beyond by providing practical and realistic customized solutions to a very high demand of struggling parents and adults seeking help to overcome a variety of challenges they face throughout their parenting journey. In our efforts to be as accessible as possible to those in need, our parenting class-based programs and support groups will be free of charge for pregnant teens, domestic violence and child abuse survivors and donation based for the underserved community.
Our mission is to provide integrative, cutting edge, evidenced based educational health and parenting based programs, products and services with an educational continuum designed to support, empower and positively transform the lives of parents, children and the professionals who work with them. We will do this through education, scholarships and community advice and advocacy. We will also provide motivational presentations, info sessions and support groups in order to build awareness, provide education and resources for struggling parents and the professionals.
Our founder and president, Mar De Carlo is a 48-year-old Hispanic professional who was born and raised by her Hispanic immigrant family who was low-income living in NYC. Growing up, she lived in a one-bedroom apartment with her mom, dad, brother and sister and began working from a very young age. Education became her opportunity to achieve what her parents could not along with hard work. She worked three jobs during college to make ends meet and she is also a survivor of sexual abuse and domestic violence. She became unexpectedly pregnant in an unmarried relationship and experienced being a single mother. She is very passionate about providing education and resources in whatever capacity possible to support others especially in underserved communities who are experiencing similar struggles to what she underwent. She is International Parenting & Health Institute’s primary spokesperson. As the organization grows, we will add more speakers to our roster. Our board will be responsible for selecting the scholarship recipients.
Our founder, Mar De Carlo’s decision to transition IPHI to a nonprofit organization supports our efforts to help struggling parents improve their overall wellbeing, so they can create a more effective and positive interactions with their child, which will not only improve their relationship, but will also improve the functioning of the child and the family as a whole, while also optimally educating the professionals who serve them. As a result, it helps to prevent domestic violence, child abuse, mental disorders and minimize the health and lifestyle challenges that can arise from the modern-day struggles and stresses parents face.
International Parenting & Health Institute will leverage its founder, Mar De Carlo’s knowledge and experience, along with her board of directors, advisory board, faculty and research and development team, to provide excellent and result-guaranteed online education and support through a learning format which allows participants from all over the world to achieve their professional goals, overcome health and parenting challenges and experience positive transformative results through our online school and curriculum.
