Parent Organizing

BPNC holds monthly parent meetings at 7 schools across the community organized by BPNC’s parent health promoters. Meetings cover a variety of issues and engage parents at each school in campaigns to strengthen neighborhood schools and the community.

 

Additionally. parents at 7 elementary and middle schools across Brighton Park organize a network of Parent Patrols composed of 250+ parent volunteers. These parents ensure the safety of students on their way to and from school. Parents also participate in local CAPS meeting and engage local alderman in violence prevention initiatives on the Southwest side.

Our parents also engage with students, serving as Parent Mentors
