Parent Advocates and Cultural Orientation: through experience and needs based research, we developed the Parent Advocate program to develop parent knowledge of the schools, and provide substantive information parents need in order to understand the US school system and support their children in succeeding academically. We are now expanding this program, beyond training parent advocates, to include a parent’s forum to engage more parents on a regular basis. The second half of the program is the cultural awareness trainings for educators working with East African youth. With this we will inform and empower people on both sides of the student – the educators and the families.
