Partnership Development

Family engagement work requires building authentic, two-way communication between educators, families, and communities. CAFE promotes an asset-based approach when addressing barriers for engagement. Through workshop series and trainings, we help educators think about forming teams to support student outcomes and how to best engage families, schools, and communities.

Example: In Maryland Community Schools, CAFE leads a workshop series with Community School Coordinators to develop better partnerships with families by reflecting on their own identities, values, beliefs, and biases and to strategize about how to equitably engage with all families.
