"We are in a national educational crisis and it’s going to require all of us working together in order to make a change"

It is the view of Empowering Parents and Families that the achievement gap cannot be closed without closing the parent engagement gap. We are in a national educational crisis and it’s going to require all of us working TOGETHER in order to make a change.  EP&F uses music, poetry, “reality statistics” and real life solutions to help parents and families take back control of their households while ensuring educational success for their children.  We reach parents where they are and help them understand that “children need our presence more than our presents.”  In addition, EP&F helps educators understand the importance of bridging the parent/school divide while motivating youth to reach their potential in order to make their educational dreams become a “reality.”

College Bound Curriculum

Dr. Willis is the author of the College Bound Curriculum/Model that focuses on empowering scholars daily regarding six pathways and the importance of including their parents and families as part of the educational journey.

All of the EP&F programs and services include a comprehensive marketing plan with the goal of not “adding more to the school staff’s plate.” Every program is different and contains customized services to meet the needs of each customer.

The EP&F programs work well at all levels from a school site to the workplace. They are specifically designed to empower scholars AND their parents along with educators who want their students to be promoted from elementary and middle school as well as graduate from high school and college. It provides a “parenopoly” series that empowers families in a unique way.
