Have you or your colleagues grappled with the most effective ways to engage parents in the education of their students? Do you feel like your strategies have little impact? The primary goal of Families United in Educational Leadership (FUEL) is to involve families in the process of helping their student’s access higher education. This workshop will outline FUEL’s program model, explain the strategies used to engage families, and guide workshop participants through the process of determining how to most effectively reach families in their own communities. Through revealing the successes and challenges of implementing this program at nine schools and community organizations, workshop participants will leave this session with a set of steps to implement in their own contexts to encourage and incentivize family engagement.
