Latino families often face many irrepressible struggles that may hinder their engagement in their child's school. Family programs geared at Latinos demand culturally sensitive approaches and best practices in order to build effective and enduring pathways to increased parental involvement and optimal student academic success. The purpose of this project was to design a Latino family strengthening after school program, to identify potential funding sources, and complete a grant application to fund the program at a middle school in California whose population reflects predominately low income Latino students. The components of the program focus on family outreach, parent and child educational workshops, social gatherings with school staff and parents; and leadership development. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project. Implications for social work are explored.
