HF Receives $50,000 from Hearst Foundation for Pathways PDF Print E-mail

Pathways to Academic Excellence is an early childhood education initiative focused on children under the age of 5 and designed to strengthen parent-child interaction, parenting strategies, and access to high-quality early childhood education. The program, which was first developed three years ago, encourages and empowers Latino parents, educators and Latino non-profits to intervene early in children’s lives, helping to support families in low-income communities.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Hearst Foundation, we will be able to expand Pathways to an additional 150 parents over the course of 2016. We will provide an early childhood education curriculum to low-income, Spanish-dominant and/or bilingual Latino parents. It is estimated that our work with 150 parents will reach 450 children.  Through workshops and easy-to-use learning materials aimed to boost the skills of their children, we will ensure that their children are better prepared to succeed in school.
