Training and Workshops

The Family Resource Center “Training & Workshop Program” encourages parents to enhance their general knowledge of navigating the high school system of governance, graduation requirements, as well as teacher/counselor conferences and various Health presentations including Adolescent Development.

Survival English/Spanish

Parents learn how to speak, read and write English and Spanish through the “Immersion Training Method” where both languages are experienced simultaneously. The class uses real-life experiences and practical conversational topics to learn. Reading Discovery field excursions are a popular part of the class that parents and community look forward to participating in this activity. At the end of each 12-class module “Certificates of Participation” are awarded to qualifying students.
