Being a PIQE's facilitator is my paycheck, not for the stippend, it is for the big opportunity to share with the community, and empower parents. Putting parents in action, is having children in College.

I am a retired educator from the Los Angeles Unified School District. I began to volunteer with Parent Institute for Quality Education (PIQE) as a facilitator for parent workshops the year that I retired - 2008. I have worked with them ever since and am consistently struck by their professionalism and their dedication to providing parents with practical, usable tools so that they may assist their children on their academic path. Another aspect of the organization that is especially impressive is the dedication to the academic success and college trajectory of students whose parents they serve. PIQE is continually re-evaluating their program based on parent input and changing requirements.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Reviewing data from parent feed-back and from student college acceptances and graduation provided to PIQE.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Investigate additional ways to publicize the efforts and success of the PIQE Program to more school principals (who have to agree to pay for the program).

I have known Piqe for over one year. The difference that makes in the families and children are great. They should have this program as a class for the parents so they could understand much better all the changes and what they need to do for their children

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Yes, I have seen the changes in parents after the 9 week class

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None

I have known about PIQE for years now and have volunteered in their San Diego office. Throughout my college career I was always amazed as to how PIQE targets a community which is often overlooked, minority parents and the tremendous impact they have in the professional success of their children. I have extensively worked to help underprivileged youth achieve higher education goals through mentorship programs and community outreach, but the parents are a big part of the educational journey of minority students. As a future educator I have seen the impact that parents have in the lives of my students and PIQE is one of the programs which helps students and their families achieve the success they deserve.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Family and Student development

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give it the funds it needs to truly impact the families it should.
