Stop “Recruiting” Parents (And What To Do Instead)

  • May 1, 2018

The Search Institute will be hosting a webinar on Tuesday, May 1st from 11:30 am-12: 30 pm CST about family engagement. This webinar will challenge leaders to shift from a “recruitment” mindset to a focus on building relationships with families as the foundation for a strong partnership between home and school or program. It will introduce practical starting points and tools for building relationships with families that will, in the long run, increase connections and participation.

Some of the topics that will be highlighted are:

  • What research says about why it can be so hard to engage families in schools and organizations
  • How to reframe our approaches to families to “meet them where they’re at”
  • Starter strategies for building trust and inviting families to partner with your school or organization
  • How Keep Connected can be a resource for reframing your family engagement approach
