WSA Parent Leadership Institute 2019

Parent Leadership 2017

Our popular Parent Leadership Institute is coming up in April. This is an event that parents LOVE - an opportunity to develop leadership, communications and advocacy skills that will both help them personally and help your policy council! This training will be very interactive, so parents will get a lot of practice with their developing skills.

Agenda: (agenda pdf here)

April 22, 9:00 am – 5:30 pm

April 23, 9:00 am – 3:15 pm

Curriculum includes:

  • Advocacy – Effective advocacy, whether it is with an elected official, with your child’s teacher or with your boss, is about building relationships and understanding how to clearly convey your message in a way that is also clear to the listener.  Parents will hone their communication skills, learning how to craft messages that resonate with their listeners.
  • Leadership Training – Parents will learn skills that will help them become a leader not only in their Head Start and ECEAP communities but also at home. The skills they learn will be transferable to work and school.
