Governance and Leadership Opportunities

Quality 21st CCLC programs offer opportunities for parents to serve in leadership roles. By inviting parents or guardians into decision making, you are tapping into rich local resources — and the people who know your students best. You are also building parent self-esteem and leadership skills.

Some examples of governance and leadership opportunities include 

  • Family members serving on advisory boards
  • Family members voting on program initiatives
  • Family members gathering feedback on their needs and satisfaction with the program
  • Family members planning or leading some program activities
