Padres Comprometidos

Padres Comprometidos is a UnidoUS parent engagement program at Elvira Elementary School, in the Sunnyside Unified School District, whose primary outcome is the fostering of a strong connection between schools and parents. Padres Comprometidos builds the capacity of Latino parents to acquire the skills they need to effectively engage with schools and play a leading role in preparing their children for college. The program addresses language and culture as assets upon which are valuable skills, confidence and empowerment. Through Padres Comprometidos, Amistades serves as the bridge between parent engagement and involvement in the schools. The program aims to change parent perceptions and knowledge regarding access to college, parent relationships with their children, and parents relationships with schools. Padres Comprometidos intends to serve 30 parents, potentially more, by the end of the 2019-2020 academic year.
