Early Childhood Learning
Empowering Parents to be their child’s first teacher!
The Readiness Basket: This program is offered to partners, caregivers and their young children ages 0 – 5. During eleven 2-hour sessions, parents discuss issues vital to parenting: brain development, the importance of play, the critical nature of the first five years in nurturing a child’s optimal development and prepare their children for Kindergarten using the early education state standard. Each session includes the opportunity for each parent/caregiver to play with and to read to their children.

Also available are custom – designed parent leadership programs.

Youth Leadership
Several thousand youth and young adults across the U.S. (and many more in 20+ other countries) have benefited from a specially-adapted version of ToP methods training offered through “Youth as Facilitative Leaders” program. It is available on an in-house basis in a 2-day or 3-day format from a multi-generational training team.

“Project Based Learning” is a week-long, flexible training that combines the best research in this field with participatory methods that ensure participants are full partners in the design, planning, implementation and assessment of projects that combine community service with academic and / or skills-based learning. A facilitator’s guide co-developed with the Heller Graduate School of Brandeis University is available with the training.

Multi-Generational Community Building
All of Partners in Participation associates have extensive experience in people-centered community development at the local level. They have delivered more than 20 “Neighborhood Academies”, in which diverse cohorts of community residents, over a 12-week period, learn and practice facilitation methods, delve into the economic, political, social and cultural development of their community and plan and implement a major mobilizing event. Most of the Academies have been held bi-lingually in communities with large Latino populations.

“Youth-Adult Partnering” training is also available as are workshops around being a “Community for All Ages” (good to grow up in and grow old in). These workshops combine comprehensive community mapping, creating a common vision and moving to action.

Community Initiatives
Associates work with community partners to design, launch and sustain initiatives with school communities, civic engagement and networks of communities. Initiatives have included:

  • Community Youth Forums to plan civic engagement campaigns.
  • Service-Learning projects.
  • Leadership for Learning initiatives to develop cadres including youth, parents, teachers and administrators to catalyze school improvement.
  • Sharing Rallies for networks of communities with a common mission.
  • Parent Involvement programs for schools.
