Future Leaders Academy (FLA): Ongoing Parent Engagement


UnidosNow recently convened a group of parents of our summer FLA scholars who are, now, in their senior year. The goal of the meeting was to provide follow-up and to support their efforts to help their children complete college applications. We were thrilled to learn how engaged the parents are in the process! We are here to offer them additional tools, encouragement, and support, as they work with their children to meet deadlines and benchmarks that will ensure college entrance.

UnidosNow at “Padres Comprometidos”

Lisbeth Oscuvilca and Wendy Barroso attended “Padres Comprometidos” training sponsored by the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) with support of  State Farm and Verizon.

This program focuses on parent engagement. We will have classes to teach parents how to acquire the skills to engage with school and how to prepare their children for college.

It shows Latino parents how language and culture could be an asset rather than an obstacle. We will be implementing “Padres Comprometidos” classes in our community. Stay alert for upcoming dates!
