The Parent Leadership Training Institute

The Parent Leadership Training Institute (PLTI) is a free, 11-week civic engagement program that teaches parents and other adults caring for children to become leading advocates in their schools and communities and improve children outcomes. The dynamic program is taught by PLTI credentialed instructors and includes guest speakers and information about programs, employment and continuing education opportunities for families.

 The PLTI is centered on democracy, respect, dignity, and a belief that when parents are given knowledge and skills, they will actively engage in civic life. Engaged parents improve their own lives and shape the future of all children.  PLTI graduates take leadership roles in various fields and design and implement projects that benefit other families, their schools and communities.

 The PLTI is a collaboration of Washington Family Engagement and Everett Community College.  The program was created by the Connecticut Commission on Children’s National Parent Leadership Institute.
