What barriers are preventing you from authentic family engagement? 

Are you struggling to recruit and maintain working relationships with your family representation groups? Systems often need to look inward and first set the foundation for authentic engagement. Do you have a description of what you expect from staff interacting with parent leaders? Do you have rolls and duties that were co-designed by everyone at the table? Do you have policies, protocols, and systems to provide timely stipends to parent leaders for their time and reimbursements? Do you know who you should recruit? Let us help remove some of these roadblocks to success with our personalized family engagement consultation and training.
