NCFL publishes new brief on Family Leadership

The National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) is pleased to announce the publication of Activating Parent Voice and Agency: A Brief on Family Leadership. This brief is the third in a series of four publications and provides an overview of NCFL’s approach to family leadership, which works to create spaces that prioritize shared power and parent voice as a means of overcoming barriers and dismantling inequities within communities.

Family leadership—alongside family literacy and family engagement—is one of the three fundamental elements of NCFL’s 60×30 Vision to establish coordinated Family Learning Systems in 60 communities by 2030, built with and for families, to increase economic outcomes and create more equitable communities.

Activating Parent Voice and Agency also highlights NCFL’s local and national family leadership models and discusses the ways these models work to bring practitioners and parenting adults together to share power, build dual capacity, create expanded spaces of advocacy, and ground the work in lived experience. Follow the link below to learn more about family leadership and the ways communities across the country are putting NCFL’s models into practice to build the capacity of families to exercise their voice as change agents and improve opportunities for their children’s educational experiences.
