The Parent Leadership Training Institute (PLTI) of Alexandria has only a few spaces remaining for the 2008-2009 program year. With application opportunity closing, interested persons have until the first week of October to contact PLTI to apply for the places that have become available.
PLTI trains parents – or grandparents or guardians – to participate more fully in community and school life for the betterment of their children.
The 20-week program offers classes in leadership skills, community building, civics, public policy and practical democracy action. An Oct. 18 retreat, focusing on developing group communications, kicks off the year. Classes begin on Oct. 24 and continue to April 24, 2009.
The program is free to class participants. Dinner, childcare – including for the first time this year an age-appropriate Children’s Leadership Training Institute – and translation services are all provided at no charge.
Participants engage in learning activities with trained facilitators, local educators, child advocates, government leaders, policy makers, media representatives and participants’ peers.
