Inter­est­ed in more effec­tive­ly engag­ing par­ents and devel­op­ing par­ents as lead­ers in your work?

Par­ents have the great­est stake in their children’s well-being and are invalu­able part­ners for orga­ni­za­tions striv­ing to improve the lives of kids and fam­i­lies. Many com­mu­ni­ty non­prof­its and schools seek ways to bet­ter engage fam­i­lies and help them fos­ter child devel­op­ment. These orga­ni­za­tions want to more effec­tive­ly reach par­ents, pro­vide ser­vices they need and want and make sure they have the tools and skills nec­es­sary to sup­port their kids.

Join us Aug. 9 for a webi­nar high­light­ing a new orga­ni­za­tion­al assess­ment tool that will help schools and oth­er non­prof­its form true part­ner­ships with par­ents, encour­ag­ing greater par­ent par­tic­i­pa­tion and involve­ment in pro­gram­ming — and equip­ping par­ents and care­givers to advo­cate for them­selves, their fam­i­lies and their communities.

The ses­sion will fea­ture the tool’s design­ers, as well as rep­re­sen­ta­tives from non­prof­its who test­ed this new resource.
