We often work in partnership with systems, service providers, and parents. We have deep experience and specific expertise fostering the leadership of:

  • Child Welfare administrators and front-line staff and child-welfare-involved parents (birth, foster, and adoptive) and youth in residential and foster care and alumni

  • Community violence prevention staff and parents in high-need, urban communities

  • Early childhood program staff – both center- and home-based providers – and parents, including Head Start parents – in both urban and rural settings
