Youth Guidance’s Parent & Family Engagement initiatives equip parents and caring adults with skills to support their children’s educational experience and to improve school outcomes. A core value for Youth Guidance since its inception, services are aligned with the National Standards for Family-School Partnerships and currently engage more than 1,400 parents in 46 Chicagoland schools.

The Parent & Family Engagement program develops parents and other caring adults as role models and leaders. Parents learn to model positive adult-student relationships and reinforce safe, youth-centered school climates. Parents are also equipped with skills to nurture the Six Developmental Pathways of healthy and academically successful youth: Physical; Cognitive; Psychological; Language; Social; and Ethical.
