I've had the pleasure to work with PIQE for about 6 six years and I must say that this program makes a big difference in our community. I've been a facilitator, educating students and parents and conducting workshops for those parents interested in making a difference in their children's education. It gives me hope to see parents so engaged in the workshops and willing to take the time, out of their busy schedule, to attend. Most of them would go directly after work, some still in their work uniforms and so eager to learn more about the educational system. I really enjoyed making a difference in my community and I will continue to support PIQE in giving every child the chance of a college education.

If I had to make changed to this organization, I would make it a requirement for every elementary, middle and high school in the United States to have the PIQE program at least once every academic year.

I came in contact with PIQE through a professional colleague who spoke so enthusiastically about the organization that I decided to accept an invitation to one of the parent graduations. I immediately understood what all the hype was about. The graduating speeches were powerful and moving. These parent had become empowered to be apart of their kids education, and more. Often it was the only graduation these parent had been a part of. It was a very positive environment and families were all very proud of the parents that completed the program.

I worked with a group of parents before and after some of them had participated in PIQE's program and the difference was very apparent. Upon graduating they felt more confident to become engaged and tackle issues facing their community head on.

I would make the program more affordable to schools so they choose to participate and maybe even make it available to other groups of parents without being affiliated to a school. Also, I would improve PIQE's name recognition. I do realize, however, that this would require significant funds.
