WHAT WE DO

Empower Families.
Build Stronger Communities.

About the Parent Leadership Team (PLT)

The PLT is a parent-led initiative driven by the shared experiences and dedication of parents themselves. Our team of staff and volunteers empower immigrant families with knowledge and support as they navigate the intricacies of the education system. Our work is guided by four key goals:

1

Equitable Representation: Amplify the voices of immigrant parents in education policy and decision-making

2

Parental Advocacy:
Build parental capacity to advocate for themselves, their children, and the community.

3

Quality Education for All:
Improve academic outcomes among children in low-income and immigrant families.

4

Collaborative Partnerships: Strengthen parental engagement by fostering community relationships.
