Parent Leadership Institute

Get GEARED UP for an exciting Parent Leadership Institute! Build leadership skills in preparing your child for next steps in life.  Learn how to help your child create academic and personal goals.  Learn the importance of a support network for youth—and how to build one.  Participate in small group activities, discussions, and more, with parents from across Texas. Become a champion for children in your home, school, and community! 

We are pleased to have as presenters the Parent Institute for Quality Education (PIQE) —a national leader in parent engagement. Certain to be a popular event, this year’s Parent Leadership Institute is available specifically to parents/guardians/caregivers from Texas GEAR UP high schools.

TXGU coordinators will then need to submit a brief recommendation along with the parent application, no later than September 12, 2016. 

The application review process is outlined in the letter to GEAR UP directors. Schools will be notified of acceptances in early September.  We look forward to this adventure in leadership!
