With PIQE, Graduation is only the Beginning!

The journey our families started does not end with our programs but is the starting point down the road of growth, opportunity, and thriving families that are empowered to change their communities. The voices of our parents are powerful and PIQE desires to expand their knowledge and engage them with their peers in support and solidarity. Our new alumni are sharing their stories to engage and empower their families, utilize their voice to advocate for change, and uplift the needs of their community.

” With PIQE, I have had more communication with my grandchildren. One has taken into account the opportunities that are in the county to finish her high school career sooner and enroll early in a university.”

Amongst our families we witness intergenerational relationships -a crucial component to the growth of the family unit and support system. These relationships are vital and as PIQE continues to partner with our families, we see how valuable it is to continue walking alongside our parents and grandparents. With much diversity and richness in the great state of California, PIQE Alumni is a beautiful network of individuals from all walks of life – bringing their culture, their voices, and their stories to light. One of our alumni from our Los Angeles Regional office writes –

“We established house rules and talked about the consequences, talk about our emotions and strategies we can do to calm ourselves. We also put an emphasis on reading daily, talking about college and future career options.”

Each day we hear of our inspired parents that continue their involvement and work within their schools and community. PIQE Alumni support their peers and empower them to participate in our workshops to increase their knowledge while pursuing personal growth at our quarterly meetings and webinars. Help us celebrate our families and welcome our Fall 2021 PIQE Alumni!
