Who we are:
The Parent Partner Program is designed to increase the capacity of parents in San Francisco to support their children’s current academic success and future life goals, including a college education. Our primary focus is working with low-income, Latino immigrant families who have historically been predominantly under-represented in school-based parent engagement activities and whose children have, on average a higher need for academic support and college access.
Over the last six years Mission Graduates’ Parent Partner Program has provided schools in the Mission District with additional support in engaging Latino families, using non-traditional and culturally responsive strategies based on peer-to-peer organizing and popular education models that connect with “hard to reach families”. We work in all grade levels, and partner closely with families, staff and site administrators to develop a customized family engagement plan to best meet the needs and budget of each school.
