Join the Stand for Children family!
I knew that my children weren’t getting the quality of education they deserved but I was a shy public speaker that didn’t know how to stand up and fight for the issues that were affecting my family. I had the opportunity to work with Stand for Children Massachusetts on parent engagement, and they provided me with the tools needed to use my voice and to call for more support at the state-level. I had the opportunity to sit down with my state representatives and tell them what our community needs.
After just one year of volunteering with Stand, I could see the difference in my child’s school, the parent engagement, and enrichment programs offered. School administration began to reach out to parents for open communication and added additional programs. I encourage everyone to get involved. Every parent’s voice is valid and important. We need parents to speak up because we are the first and most powerful advocates for our children.
