Student Success Begins at Home: Parents as Powerful Allies in Their Child's Success
Are you passionate about impacting families in your community? Raising Highly Capable Kids is a research-based, multilingual parenting program developed to build stronger families by empowering parents with the confidence, tools, and skills they need to raise healthy, caring, and responsible children. Based on Search Institute’s 40 Developmental Assets, the program has been proven to increase parent engagement and school achievement. Raising Highly Capable Kids provides parents with an interactive, practical, and hands-on tool to engage and build community with other parents. Through relevant stories and exercises, parents learn about the Developmental Assets – essential building blocks that can maximize their child’s potential and empower the whole family. The Raising Highly Capable Kids Workshop offers an overview of the program and a “hands-on” experience for those wanting to increase parental involvement in their school and build positive parent-teacher relationships.
