EDUCATION AND STRENGTHENING FAMILIES
- Early childhood education and family literacy projects that optimize the development of children ages 0-5 so they enter school ready to learn
- Integrated academic supports to help youth K-12 graduate from high school prepared for success (in school supplemental programs, academic mentors, college preparation, tutoring and homework support)
- Programs that promote character-building, leadership and life skills development and that empower and support youth to make constructive use of time outside the school environment (after-school enrichment programs, youth recreation, leadership skills development, service-learning projects, sports)
- Parent education and engagement efforts to promote healthy family environments, nurture positive youth development, and involve parents in their children’s education (parent/child communication programs, parenting classes, parental involvement with schools)
