Since 2014, CoPALM’s Parent Leadership Program has engaged parents and community members to address quality-of-life issues in the SPA 4 communities. With a focus on advocacy, our Parent Leadership Program is designed to build on the wealth of knowledge, experience, and passion of community leaders, so that they may take the lead on finding solutions to problems in their community.
Through our Neighborhoods Taking Action (NTA) curriculum, community leaders are equipped with the knowledge and understanding of local government and how to participate in the civic process. Community leaders learn the basics of organizing an initiative and work together to design and execute a project to address the quality-of-life issue in their community. These projects launch conversations between the community and local government that have the potential to shape public policy. Engaged community leaders are ultimately equipped with the necessary tools to continue organizing for community health and equity.
