All parents need help in navigating their child’s educational future. The YPN Juntos program allows Latino families to work together with their 6th-9th grade students in a family workshop series to help youth succeed in middle and high school, and explore paths to college. By bringing together parents, youth, school staff, and community partners, the end goal is to promote middle school success, high school graduation, and explore possible paths to higher education and a lifetime of success.
Formal and informal supports for families directly impact the success and future of that family. The YPN Parent Café series engages parents in meaningful conversations about what matters most – their family and how to strengthen that family by building protective factors, and promotes deep individual self-reflection and peer-to-peer learning. Parent Cafés are based on the principles of adult learning and family support and are a gateway to providing parent leadership opportunities.
