We are pleased to announce Stamford’s 19th Class of Parent Leadership Training Institute (PLTI) where in-depth leadership training will be offered to 20-25 selected participants.
Parents are their children’s first and most important teachers. They are also the best advocates for children in society. Parents can speak out on issues and inform policymakers, the media, and other parents about the needs of families and their community.
PLTI offers a highly stimulating curriculum that will boost parent’s leadership and civic skills to address such areas of concern as accessible child healthcare, the achievement gap, neighborhood safety, and the significance of parental engagement, to name a few. Together parents will emerge as strong leaders and advocates for all children. Slots fill up quickly so please submit your application as soon as you can. The training begins with an all-day (parents only) Saturday retreat on January 26, 2019 and continues with classes on Wednesday evenings for 18 weeks from 5:00 to 9:00pm, beginning with a family style dinner from 5:00 to 5:45pm. Homework help and the Children’s Leadership Training Institute (CLTI) will be provided for kids ages 4 and older during all 18 sessions.
Candidates will be selected from a diverse group of parents passionate about children’s issues and policies, and who also have a strong interest in developing their individual leadership skills to advance causes that benefit children and families. Participation in the Stamford Parent Leadership Training Institute is free of charge. Your time, commitment, and the successful completion of a written community project that reflects your passion is what we ask for in return. Consider carefully whether PLTI is the right initiative for you at this time.
