The Vision

The Big Idea: Parents Advance in their Career and Thrive

Too often we focus on our communication with parents on how they can get involved with their child’s education. What if we flipped this upside down and concentrated on helping parents advance in their career or find a new career so they can thrive? As parents experience success themselves, they will be more motivated to engage in their child’s education.

The goal of the Jefferson Community Center at Jefferson Junior/Senior High School in Edgewater is to connect parents to resources and training so they can thrive in their career and life. Our hope is enhance the supports already available and connect them with parents.

The Jefferson Community Center is truly a collaborative effort between multiple organizations that partner on the Jefferson Success Pathway.
