In partnership with Lake County School District, quarterly trainings are provided to support parents with relevant topics regarding their student’s learning and wellbeing.  The trainings focus on how to have conversations about uncomfortable topics with youth, how to be a positive, supportive influence in the life of a young person, and where to find resources to support you, the trusted adult, in supporting a young person.

Parent Mentors, who are parent volunteers who have been trained to provide academic, linguistic, and cultural support to young students, provide literacy enrichment for Lake County Intermediate School students during the school day, and on the Mobile Learning Center after school.

This program helps parents, especially Spanish-speaking parents, become better connected to the schools and better able to support the learning of children–their own or others. The program also aims to improve academic outcomes for young students, especially students whose first language is Spanish, by providing additional small group support capacity within schools.

If you have any questions about Parent Mentors or wish to participate, contact Karla Alder or Ana Dominguez.
