Our program for parents
University for Parents (UP) is a grant-funded initiative, in partnership with Harrisonburg City Public Schools, that provides information and training to local parents so that they’re empowered to serve as the primary partner in their child’s education. UP allows us to impact the entire family through interactive workshops that increase parents’ information, skills and confidence so they can better advocate for their child.
HERE’S WHAT MAKES University for parents UNIQUE:
Workshops cover a wide variety of topics
WORKSHOPS are led by local experts
