What We Do
Family engagement and organizing
Stand for Children Oregon partners with schools across Oregon to provide direct support to teachers, parents and students. Stand’s 9th Grade Success field programs offer parents the opportunity to get engaged within their student’s high school community, and learn how to ensure their 9th grader stays on track during this pivotal year. These programs also provide leadership development and part-time employment to parents and Stand members who become Stand for Children Parent Outreach Coordinators, and equip attendees with the information they need to help their students succeed in the classroom and beyond.
Policy & Advocacy
Our work at Stand for Children is thanks entirely to the support of passionate teachers, parents, community members and education advocates who fight passionately for better outcomes for our students. Stand members are never shy of a legislative fight when education is on the line.
We fight for leaders who fight for ourstudents. It's that simple. We work tirelessly in the months leading up to elections. We advocate for great representation on our local school boards and in Salem. We educate voters on the candidates who have the best track records for education, and who keep children at the center of his or her policy priorities.
