WASHINGTON LEADERSHIP NETWORK

We are 680 parents and youth leaders strong!

WELCOME TO THE WASHINGTON LEADERSHIP NETWORK

Washington Family Engagement believes that youth and parents are an untapped constituency in our state and is committed to developing active leaders and advocates and helping them use their voices to effect systemic change.

WALEN

The Washington Leadership Network (WALEN) is the advocacy and activism arm of Washington Family Engagement. We tap into our vast network of parent and youth leader graduates who believe in their unlimited capacity to improve their schools are communities.

Adults and youth graduate from our programs with a heightened sense of efficacy, agency, and urgency to actively participate and use their diverse voices at decision-making tables. WALEN organizes parent and youth leaders and offers continuous learning opportunities and personalized support as they start their advocacy and civic leadership journeys. Our diverse graduates become role models and effective leaders who work for the well-being of Washington families.
With our support:

  • They testify at public legislative and school board meetings
  • They advocate for a better public education system
  • They participate in Councils, Committees and Boards
  • They organize community convenings and workshops about current issues affecting children and families
  • They lead work groups to examine issues that impact the community

OUR PROGRAMS CHANGE LIVES

Parents and young leaders continue to practice their leadership skills, benefit their communities, and improve their schools and their own lives!
