The Youth Together Parent Academy is a year-long parent empowerment fellowship program that addresses issues such as substance abuse, violence prevention, and maintaining safe schools through monthly workshops. The Parent Academy also focuses on teaching parents the tools they need to navigate within the educational system to both develop their own advocacy skills, and most importantly, to be advocates and leaders in their children’s educational progress and journey.
The Fellowship focuses on giving parents an opportunity to build their advocacy skills through direct organizing and support from our Lead Parent Organizer, Lupe Gomez, as well as having parents be advocates and supports for other parents.
Parent Fellows are chosen on an application basis at the beginning of the year, and carries parents through the school year.
