Padres Comprometiods: Engaging Latino Parents for Long Term Student Success

Padres Comprometidos is a parent engagement program whose primary goal is the fostering of a strong connection between schools and parents.  The program builds the capacity of Latino parents to acquire the skills they need to effectively engage with schools and play a leading role in preparing their children for college. The program addresses language and culture as assets—rather than obstacles—upon which skills, confidence, and, ultimately, empowerment, are built.
