Parent Mentor Program

Parent Mentors help fill persistent equity gaps by volunteering in classrooms for 2 hours/day for at least 100 hours. The Parent Mentors are supported by weekly training on class-room instructional practices and leadership training. As a result, they support each other to pursue their goals and unite the school community for long term change.

The Parent Engagement Institute is a partnership between Palenque LSNA and Southwest Organizing Project. South Side Help Center is proud to have been selected to be the lead for Marcus Garvey Elementary, Mount Vernon Elementary and Esmond Elementary.
