Support our Parent Leaders!
Catalyst Miami’s LEAD department seeks to cultivate grassroots leadership within our communities. Everyone can lead-–at home, in the classroom, in the community. We teach individuals how to find their voice and make a difference in their communities; and we offer training and practice opportunities for youth and adults in advocacy and public policy.
The Parent Leadership Training Institute is a 22-week leadership development training that helps parents and child advocates learn the leadership skills needed to become effective advocates for children in schools, communities, and state and local governments. During the program, participants develop projects to address community concerns. Many of these projects require funding to ensure they are successful and sustainable. Our crowd funding campaign will provide seed funding for the 2015 Parent Leadership Training Institute’s community projects.
This year’s cohort has developed 15 projects, including a project that will focus on developing a neighborhood clean-up committee for Little Havana and another that will fund the creation of family literacy workshops for various neighborhoods in Miami-Dade County.
