Stand University for Parents (Stand UP)
Empowering Parents through Family Engagement
Stand University for Parents (Stand UP), an initiative of the Stand for Children Leadership Center, is our family engagement program that empowers parents to be fully engaged partners in their children's education by:
- Increasing parental knowledge and self-efficacy about how to help their children succeed in school;
- Increasing ongoing parental involvement in children's learning; and, through these factors,
- Increasing student achievement.
What can we provide for your school?
Active Parent Recruitment: Stand partners with schools to effectively recruit and sign-up families to attend.
Strong Learning Model: Stand UP classes are research-based, interactive and are led by trained Family Engagement Organizers.
Ongoing Involvement: Stand is committed to developing the skills and capacities of families to be effective advocates for their children.
Stand UP understands the barriers that must be broken in order to empower parents. It meets parents "where they are" by offering programs in English or Spanish, using effective outreach efforts, and presenting information in a straightforward manner.
