Padres Comprometidos: Engaging Latino Parents for Long-Term Student Success
MetadataShow full item record
Padres Comprometidos is a parent engagement program whose primary goal is the fostering of a strong connection between schools and parents. To this end, the Padres Comprometidos program builds the capacity of Latino parents to acquire the skills they need to effectively engage with schools and play a leading role in preparing their children for college. The program addresses language and culture as assets—rather than obstacles—upon which skills, confidence, and, ultimately, empowerment, are built.
