involvement in their children´s education is key to success in school and the
child´s personal growth. Many parents among
Bakehila´s target population lack the knowledge, experience, free time or
language skills necessary to help their children. Bakehila’s involvement aims to assist parents in relating to and
supporting their child. Programs include workshops for parents (a series of
educational sessions), facilitated discussions on topics related to
adolescence, visits from Year-in-Service volunteer (Shinshin), parent-child activities, and open
house events at the local Learning Center.
