CPPS supports parent change makers, because students win when we work together!

Spring is right around the corner!! So it’s time for CPPS’ second annual fundraising lunch, featuring delicious food, the humorous wisdom of capacity-builder extraordinaire, Vu Le, and a community of supporters who believe in the possibility that parents can make a difference!

THE RIPPLE EFFECT: One parent can nurture dozens of students in schools that most need to close the gap. Imagine the impact of 100! We train parents as tutors while also nurturing their leadership skills, so they, in turn, can mentor other parents who want to make a difference.

We’ve trained hundreds of people, at dozens of schools, across multiple languages – reaching into some of the most diverse neighborhoods in our state.
