We believe that parents and guardians are their children's primary educators, and that youth development is best done in deep, ongoing partnership with families. Parents and extended family provide leadership and build community within the GreenHouse community in countless ways, including:
Parent Council - A group of parents that meets biweekly to provide input, direction and evaluation for GreenHouse programs, build community, and coordinate special events.
Cafecitos - An summer forum in which parents meet biweekly to enjoy (iced) coffee, get to know one another more deeply, and vision for the community.
Family Events and Celebrations - Each year the GreenHouse Parents, Teen Leadership, Staff and Board collaborate to host multiple family-based celebrations throughout the year such as our annual Harvest Carnival, Christmas Posada, and Family Nights to encourage family participation and community engagement.
