Parent Leadership Institute
The SW Washington Latino Parent Leadership Institute was founded in 2015 by Diana Avalos-Leos and WSU Vancouver Professor Dr. Katherine Rodela in order to promote and help develop the leadership and advocacy of all parents and family caregivers, especially Latino families in our local schools and communities.
The Parent Leadership Institute offers bilingual, culturally responsive leadership workshops for parents in our community with the goal of greater equity and justice for all underserved students and communities of color in the Pacific Northwest.
Children's Coloring Book
The pandemic has impacted Latino families and children’s mental health across the state of Washington. This coloring book provides an opportunity for parents and caregivers to help children identify and process big emotions to improve child mental health and family wellbeing.
Funding for this coloring book was made possible by support from the Washington State Department of Health COVID-19 Emergency Language and Community Outreach Services (ELCOS).
