Our success with parents, students, and educators has proven that children’s academic performance improves with a parent’s positive attitude and support towards their education. Parent involvement that begins at home must continue at school.
For over 35 years we have been empowering families, serving communities, and building partnerships. We provide evidence-based programs to more than 20,000 families and nearly 400 schools annually. We work with English Learners, immigrants, refugees, and low-income families and communities.
Measuring effectiveness is essential to our work, our parents and our partners. We continue to measure our program effectiveness by administering and analyzing retrospective survey responses. The surveys provide us valuable information and actionable data to share with schools and districts, to continue learning together and to help build upon our efforts.
