Leadership Development

We have partnered with COFI (Community Organizing and Family Issues) to develop and implement a parent leadership training series for the families that we work with. The COFI model is a 3 part series focused on Family Focused Community Organizing, taking parents through a series of trainings that will help them to engage, lead, and work together in their communities to make positive changes.

In April 2014 we launched Phase One: Self, Family & Team in three communities with forty parents participating. In August 2015 these parents will continue on to Phase Two: Community Outreach & Action and Phase Three: Planning to Sustain & Ongoing Organizing.
