Our work beyond DC

National Family Engagement Fellowship

Flamboyan catalyzes and builds the capacity of change makers leading the charge for REAL Family Engagement in communities across the country.

Building a National Network of Family Engagement Leaders

During our 20-month National Family Engagement Fellowship, Fellowship Teams – groups of four to five family engagement leaders and advocates – designed a family engagement strategic plan to implement in their local school community. National Fellows built expertise, learned with and from each other, and joined a growing network of family engagement advocates across the country.

Building Family Engagement Practice

Fellows build knowledge in family engagement practices and research

The fellowship was designed to build participants’ knowledge of effective family engagement exposing Fellows to expert practitioners and researchers and teaching them strategic planning and an equity-focused program design.

Context-centered Landscape Design

Fellows conduct in-depth analysis and design for their unique context

Fellows conducted a landscape assessment to crystallize their understanding of the family engagement related challenges and opportunities within their community. Based on their landscape assessment, fellows designed and implemented short-cycle projects and pilots.

Strategizing Long-Term Approaches

Fellows develop a sustainable, organizational approach to family engagement

Using the knowledge and capacity gained from the short-cycle projects and pilots, fellows developed a one to three-year strategic plan for implementation and continuous improvement of family engagement, with an eye toward balancing a bottom-up and top-down approach.

Nation-wide Network of Peers

Fellows join a national network of family engagement practitioners

Fellows actively participated in a learning community–sharing best practices and informing their own practice in effective family engagement.
