Seeks to authentically engage parents, honor and value their voices; while shifting the belief and practice among policy makers of not valuing and honoring parent voice, experience and expertise. We seek equity by working in collaboration with schools & districts, community partners and other stakeholders to help reduce the educational, social and economic opportunity gaps, by increasing engagement and involvement in schools and community among parents and families of color.
The main objectives of the Phenomenal Moms Parent Empowerment workshop include:
(1) Increasing parent ability to become more empowered within schools [We define empowered as the ability to advocate for programs, and school experiences for their children and other children within schools].
(2) Increasing parent capacity to understanding educational data and academic expectations.
(3) Increasing parent’s ability to handle the adaptive challenges of schooling.
To achieve these goals, parents will take part in 4 interactive workshops focused on utilizing our voice as a vehicle of change, and feel empowered to contribute our own expertise to further our children’s schooling.
