The correlation between parental involvement and academic achievement • Factors that contribute to underachievement

Brief Program Description

Parental involvement is one of the leading indicators of a student's academic achievement. The lack of parental support or counter-productive parental participation often contributes to suspensions, expulsions, and truancy. This interactive seminar will provide participants with useful strategies that can be used to transform a problematic parent into a participating partner and help them understand the importance of their role in their children’s academic success.

Summary

Seminar participants will gain an in-depth understanding of the parental missteps and attitudinal opposition that often undermine their child’s ability to complete their education successfully. Participants will also receive strategies that can be employed to help parents better understand their role and overcome various challenges.

Biographical Sketch

Reverend Timothy Allen is a nationally recognized lecturer on urban issues. Born and raised in the city of Boston, he began his career in the corporate world, experiencing success in engineering, sales and executive recruiting. His heart for the plight of troubled youth drove him to begin working directly with this population as his vocation. For more than 20 years, he has worked with high-risk youth and their families. He has pioneered strategies to assist youth in re-integrating into their home communities and has designed and delivered training for families to help them support their children. His innovations have caught the attention of law enforcement agencies, schools, community-based organizations, and faith-based organizations, for which he is a regular speaker, trainer and consultant. Rev. Allen is also the senior pastor of the Greater Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, an urban ministry that focuses on restoring broken families.
