The Family Engagement Program encourages the motivation and active participation of parents and/or caregivers in the educational process of their children. In addition, the Family Engagement Program supports parents and/or caregivers to achieve their own goal.
The Family Engagement Program has a team of professionals and volunteers highly committed to the success of the families. Priority is given to parents.
ESL Classes (English as a Second Language)
The purpose of the ESL Class (English as a Second Language) is to develop verbal and written communication skills. This program is designed to help Hispanic families not only to increase the likelihood of employment but also to support their children’s educational development. The curriculum is offered in 3 levels (beginners, intermediate, conversational) in order to meet the diverse needs of participants.
Esperanza’s workshops are created based on the needs of our client population. Workshops address parent engagement issues, helping Hispanic parents learn how to best support their child’s educational attainment through advocacy and support, as well as socio-economic issues that impact health and well-being.
