Phoenix Plays Host to Two NCLR Education Institutes

In Phoenix last week, our education programs team hosted two institutes dedicated to improving education outcomes for youth. The Leadership Institute for Latino Literacy (LILL) and Padres Comprometidos both welcomed participants from across the country for three days of best practices, information sharing, and networking. 

During LILL, participants received hands-on training and leadership development to help them improve literacy instruction through the inclusion of technology at their schools.

Padres Comprometidos, our parent engagement program, builds the capacity of Latino parents of students from pre-school through high school. This happens as the parents learn their role in preparing their children for academic success in school and ultimately for college and careers.

Participants at this year’s institutes also made use of social media to document their experiences. Below are some of the social media highlights of the two events. Be sure to visit nclr.org for more information on each of these terrific programs.

So excited to be part of the @nclr #padrescomprometidos training #NCLRpc #arizona #statefarm
