Free leadership training offered to parent and community leaders

To improve outcomes for children, we must focus on parent voice, involvement and leadership. Mayor Sly James and Greater Kansas City LISC invite you to learn about the Parent Leadership Training Institute, a program that has created parent leaders for over 20 years.

PLTI's curriculum is unique; it integrates personal and child development, leadership training, and civic literacy and participation. This toolkit of skills helps parents have the confidence to be leaders that make real change – in schools, communities and government.

Your input is valuable to us. We'd like to hear your thoughts on the Parent Leadership Training Institute. Please consider attending one of three information sessions on August 30th, and if you are a parent, please come experience a “taste” of PLTI during the evening session.

The Parent Leadership Training Institute enables parents to become leading advocates for children. Parents' opinions are often unheard. They lack advocacy skills, but not the motivation and will to change their children's lives. The PLTI teaches parents, who wish to improve the lifelong health, safety and well-being of children.
