Family Engagement Workgroup

Family support looks different in the Pre-K years than it does for parents of Middle School students. It looks different for those whose first language is not English; different for those facing poverty or mental illness. The CYD network partners believe that the support of ALL Bartholomew County's families elevates the hope for our youth and community.

The purpose of the Family Engagement Workgroup is to increase the skills, awareness, and opportunities for caregivers to actively support positive youth development.
