Family involvement is fundamental to students' success, yet many parents don't have the skills or resources to become effective school advocates for their children. That's where Turning the Page comes in. TTP recruits "hard to reach" parents from historically under-served schools and helps them become active and effective participants in their children’s education. Community Nights bring everyone together for parent workshops, student mentoring, dinner, book giveaways, and special visits from popular authors who make reading come alive. Discussions cover everything from parental involvement at school to academic standards, from understanding how children learn to tips for learning at home, and from preparing for high school to planning for college. TTP also provides opportunities for families to learn outside the classroom, especially during the summer months when parents find it difficult to identify productive activities for their children. TTP has sponsored trips to dozens of museums and landmarks, distributed more than 100,000 books, and hosted over 800 Community Nights. What could be more gratifying than helping parents and children develop a love of learning?
