Families in Schools

Los Angeles, California



Families in Schools (FIS) provides schools and educational agencies with culturally-relevant parent engagement curricula and advocacy for quality education. This grant will enable FIS to share nationally its Kresge-funded “Transition to College” workshops through a train-the-trainer model. FIS grounds its training in adult learning theory and provides partners with actionable tools for engaging parents and families in postsecondary access and success.
