What Parent Leaders have to say about Parent Leadership:

"The power is in your voice, yourself, your pen, your computer, and your phone. You can make your presence known and make a real difference. Maybe not this week, but if you stay at it, something will happen for children."

Rosalind Adgers, Class 2000

"I didn't realize how much of an impact it would have on my children. The training gave me more confidence in my parenting. You develop a nice support system. As the course continues into the second part, you learn about different systems and how they operate. With this kind of information I now feel that I am in the middle of trying to effect change in the school system."

Ava Marie Hart, Class 2002

"It's the best experience I can take through life." Colleen Allene, Class 2002
