Parents as Leaders (PALS) includes an introductory curriculum, known as PALS 1.0, and a more advanced program, dubbed PALS 2.0. The PALS 1.0 curriculum is rich and diverse, featuring topics such as children’s social and emotional development, school readiness, community resources, health and safety, nutrition, etc. Practical topics such as how to use the public library and how to utilize common household objects to teach math concepts, for example, are also included. Speakers are recruited from the local community. The goal is to develop a cadre of empowered and educated parents who can serve as peer leaders in their respective neighborhoods. The PALS 2.0 curriculum is focused on advocacy, including but not limited to advocacy at the school level as well as more broad-based political engagement. Tools such as presentation skills are also part of the curriculum. Questions? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
