FAMILY LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE
The Family Leadership Institute is a free, bilingual three-day training program for parents and guardians of children who attend schools in the Central Falls School District. This program was offered for the first time in August of 2011. It provides parents and guardians with the tools and information they need to better advocate and participate in their children’s education. In addition to developing practical leadership skills, participants will learn about how the education system works and how families can work together to strengthen schools and increase educational opportunities for their children.
For more information on the program, please contact:
