 HEY PARENTS:

Parent Involvement Network is the time for F.A.M.I.L.Y. (Fathers all Adults and Mothers Involved in Leading a Youth) to come together in support of what our students are learning in FLON’s programs and strengthen ourselves as advocates for our “Future Leaders.”

 

Parents and caretakers will share learning about abstinence education, effective parent-child communication skills and the benefits of positive youth development.  One of most important functions of a parent or caregiver is being the first educator and the strongest advocate for “Future Leaders.”  This important assignment requires the entire village to encircle the adult and the youth.

 

To this end, FLON and all members of the F.A.M.I.L.Y. will have clear expectations for behavior based on community and cultural values.  Everyone does their best to see our youth through a safe passage to young adulthood and welcome them into the community as leaders as we work together to increase opportunities for them while simultaneously decreasing risk factors that present obstacles to their success.  The Parent Involvement Network is a fantastic opportunity to:

 

1. create and maintain supportive relationships with F.A.M.I.L.Y. members

2. maintain an awareness of and access to the community resources and

3. support our Future Leaders in achieving their goals and seeing their dreams come true.
