Parent Workshops

For Parents/Guardians of Students

An educational, incentive-based program focused on increasing family cohesion and parents’ involvement in their child’s education. As we empower students in their academic career, we also empower their parent/guardians in obtaining information that help them achieve their family’s goals. We offer parent workshops in English and Spanish, that focus on healthy habits, financial management and helpful community resources.

They help families with all sorts of problems and the girls with different skills. Thank you for letting me be a part of it.” – Eastport Girls Club grandmother
