Families that Lead is an 8-week leadership development series designed to give parents and caregivers the tools to be effective leaders and advocates for their family. Classes will be held weekly for 2 1/2 hours per session, with the goal of creating knowledgeable parent leaders who can both advocate for themselves and support other families in need. Participants are asked to pledge to share the expertise they gain for a 2-year period following the class.

Key components of the class include:

  • Change and the family
  • Child development
  • Finding your voice
  • Understanding systems
  • The home/school educational partnership
  • Developing partnerships

An optional capstone experience may include an in-depth project or portfolio demonstrating your ability to research and communicate using technology on an issue of singular importance to you.
