Parent 2 Parent


The Parent 2 Parent program is a family-focused college awareness initiative committed to delivering college preparatory information to our community. The curriculum information can be delivered in English and/or Spanish by trained Parent2Parent volunteers. Parent2Parent volunteers are trained in five modules by Opening Doors/Abriendo Puertas; the nation's leader in family engagement.

1. Communication

2. High School Graduation Requirements

3. College Prep- Budgeting and Financial Aid

4. Standardized Testing and College Entrance Exams (e.g., SAT, ACT, TSI)

5. Academic Portfolio

The program is based on the academic socialization model that is defined as a family's ability to communication academic expectations and foster educational and occupational aspirations to their children.
