Poder Familiar Working Group is composed of organizations with a strong background in engaging the community. Its mission is to equip students and parents with the tools, information and opportunities they need to lead education reform efforts from the ground up in order to improve student success, cultivate community leadership and advance educational equity. The focus of this collaborative is to build the capacity and support the leadership of parents and students from low-income and minority backgrounds. Poder Familiar will do this by engaging and working with parents and students to identify strategies to help their families succeed in school with academic proficiency and connect to in and out of school engagement opportunities in safe environments.
The Reconnecting Santa Fe Youth is focused on the prevention and re-engagement of Disconnected Youth. Our mission is to reduce the number of youth between the ages of 16-24 disconnected from school and jobs.
Truancy Task Force
The mission of the Truancy Task Force is to provide a continuum of events, meetings and resources in which all collaborators have an open forum to share, discuss progress and direct initiatives in order to better our community by increasing attendance and graduation rates as well as assisting in the prevention of and decreasing the amount of disconnected/disengaged youth. Truancy Task Force intends to support and expand on its mentorship and leadership opportunities, education and wraparound supportive measures to keep our youth engaged in school and positively in the community.
