Who better understands the needs of the child they have loved, nurtured, and poured care into? Family empowerment enables families to accelerate their child’s learning!

60% of Oakland third-graders read below grade level. A student who cannot “read to learn” will probably not graduate from high school. -GO Public Schools – January 2020

Children Rising developed FamilyBridge to empower parents and caregivers in our public schools most affected by poverty, violence and educational inequity. Our goal is to partner with families so they may further develop the skills, confidence, and tools needed to accelerate their child’s learning, and advocate for their vision of their child’s academic growth. We know that when families are an integral part of their child’s education, they can confidently nurture and advocate for their child’s academic success.
