Family Engagement Programs
Families In Schools (FIS) develops culturally-relevant curricular programs from birth to college, designed to engage families in the education of their children. The programs are focused on critical issues that all parents and guardians should know in order to support learning and advocate for their children’s needs, ranging from quality early education, family literacy to college awareness and preparation. FIS can train staff on how to deliver the curricula or one of our certified facilitators can deliver the workshops virtually or at your site.
