Univision Chicago "Es El Momento" - Abriendo Puertas

Having trained more than 500 local Latino parents since 2010, the Metro Chicago Abriendo Puertas (“Opening Doors”) parent leadership and advocacy program, a national curriculum being offered locally through the Latino Policy Forum, announces its goal to train a total of 1,000 local parents by the end of its third year. With a train-the-trainer workshop held in Chicago from November 26-28, 2012, this third cohort marks the first time that Abriendo Puertas will be offered with locally-trained facilitators. The program aims to mitigate stubborn Latino education achievement gaps by empowering children’s first teachers—their parents—to build a strong academic foundations in their homes.
