We have a highly promising 2-generation model of education that consists of free ESOL, HSE, and pre-HSE classes for parents operated in close partnership with early childhood education programs across the City. We contextualize instruction for the unique strengths, needs, and opportunities of parents and integrate evidence-based child development and parenting content based on the latest brain science and the Hand-in-Hand Parenting model (www.handinhandparenting.org). This unique approach has produced impressive initial results for both parents and their young children.

- Manage our education programs to achieve desired outcomes, developing and tracking key indicators of success and providing support to instructors to intervene when parents are not on track for successful outcomes;
- Ensure that we have the data, personal stories, and other insights from students and teachers to continually improve our performance and communicate our results to external audiences;
- Work closely with development and communication staff to collaborate on grant applications and ensure all fundraising and communications are sound and well-informed;
- Oversee student recruitment, intake, placement, pre- and post-testing, and transition to next academic or vocational step;
- Develop and manage relationships with partner agencies in early childhood education throughout the City;
- Provide vision, inspiration, and leadership to achieve world-class results.
