Program Description

Enlaces outreach specialists work with Hispanic students in grades four through seven at six Durham public schools: E.K. Powe, George Watts and Lakewood Elementary Schools; Lakewood Montessori and Rogers-Herr Middle Schools; and Durham School of the Arts.

Weekly student meetings help participants to build positive connections with teachers, parents and peers, and monthly parent workshops help parents to reach out to their children and better navigate school procedures. The Parent Ambassador component of the program trains parents to become leaders in their children's schools.
