The growing number of school drop outs continues to rise, yet minimal attention is given to raise awareness of this social problem. The purpose of this curriculum is to educate Latino adolescents and their parents about the neighborhood challenges, importance of self-esteem, lack of support groups and other risks young people face that hinder their educational achievement. It is necessary that social workers and teachers working with children, youth and families address the importance and benefits of remaining in school for the well-being of the individual and communities as a whole. This training curriculum includes three modules, one for the adolescents, one for the parents, and one for both youth and their parents. The modules in the curriculum of this thesis consist of a session by session manual to help guide social workers and teachers working with Latino youth who may be at risk of dropping out of school to help empower them to continue their education attainment, while simultaneously involving their parents to become proactive in their child's lives.
