Seven parent leaders in the Guilford Parent Leader Network have attended the Spiral of Transformative Change Equity Webinar Series. This education series is similar to the training Ready Ready staff and board members received through the Equity Strategies Committee. Parent leaders having access to the foundational information that guides Ready Ready equity work is key to living our value of being equity-driven.
Additionally, three leaders from the Guilford Parent Leader Network have completed training in the Community Organizing and Family Issues (COFI) Phase 2. They will use their training to train their fellow GPLN members in community outreach and action. COFI Phase 2 teaches teams to reach out and build partnerships with parents and other community residents, community associations and organizations, businesses, schools, and other institutions. GPLN members completed COFI Phase 1 training in Fall 2020, and a second COFI Phase 1 training is in the works for this summer.
