Parent Leadership Initiative

 

Creating a Caring Community for Children” is the goal of Parent Leadership Initiative (PLI). This is a 16 week program that teaches parents the tools, skills, and knowledge to become strong leaders in their communities. Graduates of the program are then able to join the Graduate Coalition. Here they work on projects to help make a difference in their areas of Suffolk County.

Mission Statement:

PLI is based on the idea that the family is the heart of the community. Parents can be their children’s most important teachers. They are the strongest supporters in handling the needs of children and families. Parents have the ability to bring about change, but often do not recognize their abilities, skills, or power. PLI gives parents the opportunity to come together to share experiences, ideas, and concerns. They can bring about positive change in their communities. 

 

GOALS:

  • Give parents the opportunity to come together to share experiences, ideas, and concerns.
  • Prepares parents from diverse ethnic and economic backgrounds to assume leadership roles in their communities
  • Builds self esteem and self confidence in order to improve leadership skills 
  • Increases involvement in and knowledge of your community and its resources.
  • Understanding how government works and be able to navigate through the system
  • Enriches partnerships and community partners to build networks
  • Have a thriving community where parents have more resources, access, opportunities for interaction and support
