Padres Promotores is a peer to peer model of approximately 20 parent/guardian volunteers who have graduated from College Academy for Parents (CAP). Parents facilitate college knowledge workshops and personal experiences with higher education to other parents at various elementary, middle and high schools within SUSD and south Tucson.
Padres Promotores operates under the same principal as College Academy for Parents; a college education begins in the home. We honor and respect families. Parents are their children’s first educators. It respects their experiences, culture and community. Even parents who have not obtained formal college knowledge by having attained a college degree, still have valuable insight to share with their students as they prepare them to be the first in the family to go to college.
- Parents will be the key agents and advocates of higher education.
- Increase the educational achievement levels of the South Tucson community.
- Enhance parents’ leadership skills through community outreach.
- Realize the potential within their own experiences, culture, and community to promote educational achievement in their family and in their community.
