Family Engagement

The out-of-school time (OST) sector will authentically engage with parents and caregivers to develop their leadership skills to support their child’s social emotional development and school success.

Authentic parent engagement…

  1. Centers around the success of the child/youth. Parents/caregivers and OST staff are focused on common goals (support of child’s social emotional skills and school success).
  2. Recognizes and validates parents’ expertise as child’s first teacher.
  3. Leaves judgment at the door.
  4. Understands and honors the culture of all families.
  5. Requires intentional action oriented related to youth success.
