About the Family Leadership Institute

Family Leadership Institute

The Family Leadership Institute (FLI) is a multi-faceted educational program focused on providing Hispanic families with the knowledge, tools and inspiration to help their first and second generation children succeed in school and in life.  Recognizing and respecting the changing demographics throughout the U.S., we also offer a multi-cultural approach for all families.

The FLI primary objective is to teach parents and caregivers the art and skill of family leadership in support of academic achievement and life success.  We do this by using a practical, ten-step approach, based on and appropriate to all families, especially the Hispanic culture.

Our goals are to increase involvement of families in their children’s education as well as provide purpose, tools, and direction to parents and their children to achieve academic and life success.

We also are committed to produce a cadre of knowledgeable and committed parents and caregivers who actively support school and community efforts to benefit their children and encourage other families to do the same.  The training consists of the following key concepts:

  • Home: Where Leadership Begins
  • Past, Present, and Future
  • Living in Two Worlds: Cultural/Generational Perspective
  • Storytelling & Journaling: Valuing Literacy Through Family History
  • Education:  The Key to a Better Future
  • College Field Trip: What Does Success Look Like
  • Improving Family/School Relationships
  • Facing Challenges at Home: Coping Strategies for Success
  • Creating a Family Action Plan: Roadmaps to Success
  • Celebrating Family Academic Excellence: Success as a Way of Life
