Parent Leader Training

The PLTI program is a two-generation strategy to bolster parental involvement while promoting the lifelong health, safety and learning of children. The program integrates child development leadership and democracy skills into a parent curriculum. Parents attend a 20-week program. The application process is competitive. Family supports such as child care, meals and transportation are provided. Each class mentors the next class, creating a pyramid effect of community caring and a developing coalition of parents. The classes are evaluated by parents for both short and long-term outcomes.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Help parents become the leaders they would like to be for children and families; Expand the capacity of parents as change agents for children and families; Develop communities of parents within the community that will support one another in skills development and successful parent action for children; Facilitate systems change for parental involvement with increased utilization of parents in policy and process decisions; and Increase parent-child interactions and improve child outcomes through parent involvement.
