Just in Time Parenting

Welcome to Extension Just in Time Parenting!

Extension Just in Time Parenting (JITP) is an outreach innovation that brings high quality, research-based information to families at the time it can be most useful and make the biggest difference in their lives.

Our vision is to reach all parents -- starting prenatally and continuing through adolescence - with the key information that can help their family unit thrive and support their children as they grow up healthy and ready for success.

This multi-state initiative is starting with the best that already exists within the Extension system and transforming that into two national interactive internet resources on parenting.
