Family involvement in children’s education is an important component of the EducationWorks afterschool program. Parents are encouraged to visit, observe, and participate with their children in activities, accompany their children on program-sponsored trips, serve side-by-side in community service projects, assist in the classroom or participate in family reading activities. Several times a year, parents have the opportunity to participate in community service activities alongside their children, which sends a strong, positive message about everyones responsibility in building and caring for the community.
