Parental Engagement Program Padres Comprometidos
Conexión Américas has been successfully implementing the Parents as Partners parental engagement program for Latino parents since 2008. The program, Padres Comprometidos in Spanish, aims to forge a working relationship between Latino parents and schools, to ultimately improve children’s academic achievement. Through this program, parents gain new knowledge and skills and develop the confidence necessary to improve the learning environment at home and advocate for services at school – despite the language and cultural barriers they may face. In turn, these parents can help improve their child’s chances for school success. Donated funds will be used for supplies that parent participants can use at home with their children, including science kits, math activities, and materials to make a book with their child. Additional funds will be used for refreshments and childcare, which make our program more accessible to parents.
