Our goal is to increase the involvement of families in their children’s education. To do this, we offer learning opportunities across the state, leadership mentoring, and support.

Parents can connect directly to a local mentor to address the families’ needs.  All Michigan families are able to access 1:1 support, electronic and printed resource information, and referrals to local community resources.  See the Michigan Alliance for Families map to get in touch with a staff person.
