Vision

Parents are an active and included constituency on behalf of children, enhancing the civic fabric of Kansas City.

Mission

The Parent Leadership Training Institute KC activates parents to become leading advocates for children.

Program

Parent Leadership Training Institute (PLTI) believes that families, communities, and democracy are strengthened when parents have the skills to maximize child outcomes at home, in school, in their neighborhood, and in public policy.

PLTI includes the following: a 21-week leadership and civics course and curriculum (childcare and meals provided) with nationally trained facilitators, a framework for parents to develop their own community leadership projects, and individualized coaching and community connections to advance parents' civic engagement during the program and after graduation.

Over the course of the program, PLTI-KC parents start to not only see themselves in leadership positions, but know they can take collective action to solve problems that affect them, their families, and their communities.

Transformational Change

“leadership, community organizing, and other movement-building organizations must invest in human development; otherwise, they may experience policy wins, but will not build power in a way that leads to transformational change.” Source: Parent Leadership Indicators Project.

PLTI is part of the Parent Leadership Indicators Project and the Parent Leadership Evaluation Network.

Help Our Cause

The power to make positive change for the next generation starts by investing in parents’ potential. Help us build parent power. 

When families are engaged in participatory democracy, child outcomes in health, safety, and education will improve.
