Project Name: PRE COLLEGIATE PARENT CURRICULUM
Project Description: The Roaring Fork Pre-Collegiate Program is looking for assistance crafting and presenting its Parent curriculum. The Pre-Collegiate Program is an academic and extracurricular enrichment program designed to aid motivated students in 7th-12th grades who are “first generation”: meaning they would be the first in their family to attend college. Now in its 11th year, the Program is expanding its programming in an attempt to ensure that its students have the best chances of succeeding in a college environment. A large part of this is to ensure that the parents of students enrolled in the program themselves have the knowledge and commitment to best support their kids during the application process and beyond. The program has done parent education in the past but is looking to formalize a curriculum to be used on an annual basis. The project would consist of reviewing available materials, determining best practices, crafting or preparing handbooks or other literature, and presenting material at monthly or bi-monthly evening parent meetings during the school year.
