Advancement Project Closing the Opportunity Gap

Focus on Southeast L.A. parent leaders

Our My First Teacher (Mi Primer Maestro) program, in a short year and a half, has helped to build the capacity of dozens of parents of young children in the southeast cities of Los Angeles. We are supporting these leaders to understand the strengths within their families and communities, increase their awareness of the importance of early learning, and come together to advance their childrens’ academic success. Telemundo recently featured a story on My First Teacher that underscores the importance of family engagement. You can watch it here.
