Colegio de Padres [Parents College]

Overview

At Latino Network, family is at the heart of everything we do. Latino Network’s parent and family engagement programs honor your role and investment in your child’s future and complement our youth programs. Our Latino/a instructors empower parents with the tools and resources needed to be advocates for themselves and their children.

I joined Colegio de Padres to learn how to help my daughter. The tools were there, but I didn’t know how to use them. In Colegio de Padres, they taught us how to ask to meet with a teacher, how to talk with the counselor or the principal. It helped me immensely.
