We are a nonprofit organization working to support student achievement, from pre-school to college and career, by helping families become engaged in education and providing assistance to schools and organizations to engage families and diverse communities. We are the home of ParentNet and the Parent Leadership Training Institute.
We inform, educate, and connect stakeholders. We offer workshops and community events. Our annual United for Student Success, Equity and Engagement Conference attracts hundreds of educators, parents, early learning professionals and others working with kids and families. Find out more and register for the conference.
We promote change in the public education system by building collective knowledge about the positive impact of school- family-community partnerships on student achievement. Our library features links to research reports, studies and publications on family and community engagement.
Collaboration is key to children's academic success and healthy development. We value our partners and work collaboratively to identify challenges and opportunities for family and community engagement. Together we develop effective models and share best practices.
