Mobilizing Families and Communities

Mobilizing Families and Communities

June 3, 2015 3:00-4:00pm EST


Our four-part "Community Schools and Equity" webinar series concluded with our final webinar, "Mobilizing Families and Communities."

What important role does family and community engagement play in community schools and equity strategies? How are community schools an organizing vehicle for struggling families to become engaged as local partners in school decision-making? Participants explored these important questions and gained useful tools for creating pathways for students, families, and residents to feel empowered to effect change in their community and community schools. 

You can view and listen to the webinar here, and find the accompanying PowerPoint slides here.

Speakers included:

Missy Carpenter -  Director of Community Schools, Y.O.U.
Henry Perez -  Associate Director, InnerCity Struggle
