The Colorado Children’s Campaign this week launched the first ever Parent Academy—a new program for parents interested in learning how to advocate for high-quality education in their community and at the state level. The Parent Academy is designed to help parents use their voice to push for high-quality education opportunities for their children and all Colorado kids.

Participants will develop an understanding of the education system at the state level and dive into advocacy strategies during five monthly three-hour sessions. Expert speakers on advocacy techniques and the current state of education in Colorado will join participants as they learn the fundamentals of becoming an effective advocate in their local schools or at the State Capitol. For information on future sessions of the Parent Academy, contact Shelby Edwards at shelby@coloradokids.org or 303-620-4525.
