What Parents Need to Know to Support Their Child on the Pathway to College: Learning from the ENLACE Experience
W. K. Kellogg Foundation
This brochure highlights two successful ENLACE partnership programs that connect college aspirations with actual college attainment for Latino students: (1) The "ENLACE y Avance" (Advance) partnership, led by the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), whose innovative program of family home visits provides information about college to Latino parents and students; and (2) The "Padres Promotores" program in Santa Ana, California, taps the potential of Latino parent leaders. This model of parent advocacy is built on the community health promoter approach. The brochure concludes with information parents need to support their child on the pathway to college; and a list of additional resources for more research and good practices on parent support for college-going children.
