The Collaboration for Student & Parent Leadership: Poder Familiar
The Collaboration for Student & Parent Leadership: Poder Familiar Working Group is composed of organizations with a strong background in engaging the community. Its mission is to equip students and parents with the tools, information and opportunities they need to lead education reform efforts from the ground up in order to improve student success, cultivate community leadership and advance educational equity. The focus of this collaborative is to build the capacity and support the leadership of parents and students from low-income and minority backgrounds. Poder Familiar will do this by engaging and working with parents and students to identify strategies to help their families succeed in school with academic proficiency and connect to in and out of school engagement opportunities in safe environments.
