Capacity Building Partnership

Our Capacity Building Partnership focuses on systemic parent engagement for community, corporate and foundation partnerships. Project Appleseed's goals in education organizing focus on system change and school accountability. 

Our Program Step-By-Step

Although family involvement in education is not an original idea, a systemic and integrated approach to family engagement represents an innovative strategy in education.

Distribute the Pledge

The Toolbox is the point of enrollment that schools take to become involved in Project Appleseed. This effective model is research based, meets state mandates,Title I and best practices.

"A 10% increase in parental participation (a form of social capital) would increase academic achievement far more than a 10% increase in school spending."

This is not an argument against school budget increases, but an argument for paying attention to social capital (Putnam, Sanders 2001). Research repeatedly correlates family engagement with student achievement, yet this strategy is rarely activated as an integral part of school reform efforts (Weiss et al, 2010).  Our program can increase family engagement in your school community!

Project Appleseed's Parental Involvement Toolbox is ourl program designed for educators and parent leaders to supersize and mobilize family engagement.
