On the Move: Parent University

On the Move: Parent University

What They Do:

Through more than 100 classes offered at six elementary schools, Parent University fosters volunteerism and leadership to mobilize parent participation in the classroom. Each year over 1,600 parents learn how to support their child’s literacy, gain computer skills, and improve their English. As their confidence grows, parents nurture their children’s healthy habits and lifelong learning skills.

Parent University campuses include Salvador/El Centro, McPherson, Phillips, Shearer, Napa Junction, and Snow Elementary Schools. A variety of services are offered to participating parents, including childcare, food, bilingual support, and morning and evening classes and workshops.


Since I started the program, I’ve seen a lot of changes in myself and in my family. My daughter and I have gotten closer, and now she wants me to read to her more. My wife and I are more involved in school, helping with events, fundraisers, and in the classroom.
