District-led parent mentor program promotes path to college for English learners

Padres Promotores del Camino al Éxito Universitario (Parent Mentors for the Road to College Success) is a three-month program at Whittier Union High School District that taps into the collective knowledge of parents of English learners and provides them with a medium to share that knowledge and/or mentor other parents. There is also a curriculum for parents that are part of the program, which includes "classes on managing stress during the pandemic," information about the district's special education program, and other related information. Parents now help lead, inform, and present at district meetings.
