Parents are uniquely motivated to advance positive change in their communities and create a better world for their children.
Parents have been integral co-creators and contributors to the Power of Parenting program from its inception. Building on what we’ve learned from years of parent leadership efforts—and decades of working with parents—Families First launched our new Parent Leadership program in the summer of 2020.
This application-based program elevates the essential role of parents in shaping equitable local policies and systems that impact their children’s lives, to propel them into a more optimal future.
The program will help fill major gaps around parent participation in community-level planning and decision-making, leading to long-term positive outcomes for children, families, and communities.
