Our Community Engagement Services programs engage families as change agents and positive contributors to their communities.
Our Community and Parent Engagement program’s primary purpose is to empower family engagement in the school system. The program doesn’t just focus on youth engagement but also encourages strong parental involvement and support.
We found that community and parent engagement is an ongoing process that increases active participation, communication, and collaboration between parents, schools, and communities with the goal of educating the whole child to ensure student achievement and success. Improving parent engagement grows leaders that will become more civically engaged, particularly among at-risk populations. Families First recognizes that the combination of being a supportive parent and actively participating is what ultimately makes an engaged parent.
