Document Number: 6399Reaching Higher Ground - This study identifies 10 successful parental outreach programs based at postsecondary institutions that target Latino parents and provide curriculum services specifically for them. Listed programs include multiyear efforts involving parents and children, short-term events geared exclusively to parents and one-day events designed to reach hundreds of participants. Despite the different approaches of each program, all share five characteristics: (1) committed program champions, (2) cultural considerations, (3) program evaluation, (4) successful partnerships and (5) stable funding sources.
