Under the banner “Education for All/Educación para todos,” the Parent Partner Program has successfully linked up critical resources and Parent Liaisons at Marshall E.S., James Lick M.S., and Mission High to strengthen their work in empowering consistently marginalized parents.
Some of these resources include access to School Loop trainings, the creation of a “Solidarity Network” to effectively connect families with much needed social services, and a consistent stream of information regarding school governance with the intent to mobilizing parents to participate in it at these sites.
Sister organizations in the Mission currently supporting our parents on their journey to college through concerted resource and expertise coordination, include: MEDA, CARECEN, Instituto Familiar de la Raza, CAMINOS, and the SF Home Project, a program of Catholic Charities.
Our first “Solidarity Network Fair” will be taking place on Monday, November 16, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at James Lick M.S. (25th & Clipper) Be sure to stop by and see what meaningful parent engagement looks like when the whole community embraces the idea.
