by Campos, Guadalupe, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 70; 10004155
Abstract (Summary)

It has been well documented that parental involvement in their children’s education brings a variety of benefits not only to the students but to the community as a whole. However, current research has demonstrated that programs targeting Latino families must include culturally sensitive approaches in order to increase parental engagement and the students’ success. The purpose of this project was to design a Latino parental school involvement program and identify potential funding to fund the program at La Habra Family Resource Center. The components proposed for the program focus on family outreach, educational workshops for parents, school and community events, and leadership development. The program was developed after an intense literature review. Implications for social work practice are discussed. The actual submission and/or funding for this grant was not required for successful completion of this project.
