CPLAN engages parents with a capacity building model to address educational inequities and social needs to ensure a high quality, whole child educational experience for all learners. Our workshop series centers family engagement and building parent leaders. We strive to create thriving self-reliant parent advocates by building on their confidence and capacity through training, coaching, and community building.

Our Parent Leadership training series is designed as a peer leadership model for parents to train one another, share knowledge and experiences, and help one another develop their communication and community organizing skills. Our training focuses on building knowledge of parent advocacy, shaping and sustaining parent councils, engaging community leaders and other key stakeholders, partnering with school administrators to inform or co-design school policies and practices.
