Description du projet
The American Dream Academy strives to improve learning for the marginalised Phoenix’s K-12 educational community. Situated at the inner-city campus, it strives to improve quality education of marginalised students by reaching out first to parents to help them transform their children's educational experience. Parents of struggling K-12 students enter the nine-week program to gain knowledge and skills necessary to improve the educational development of their children, including methods to improve parent/child relationships; how to reduce dropout rates and ensure high school graduation. Since October 2006, the program has “graduated” nearly 6,000 parents of students and indirectly impacted more than 24,000 low-income, minority youth throughout the greater Phoenix region. It won the Peter Magrath University Community Engagement Award in 2009.
