About Us

Parent Villages was founded in February 2018. Since its inception, this initiative-turned-program has brought hundreds of people together to discuss all aspects of education. Our focal point has always been to Build Bridges between the community and those who make decisions about our communities.

Meanwhile, working together to improve communication channels, policies, and structures directly impacting the quality of education and lives of ALL children in Greater Springfield and Western MA.

Our mission is to build a bridge between parents, youth, advocates, community leaders, and educators to close the opportunity gap and improve the quality of education and the lives of ALL children. Our vision is to complete the belief gap that has infiltrated the minds of our children – that they cannot go beyond what they can see. We do this by leveraging key partnerships, mentoring families, and financially investing in our youth via the Education Matters Scholarship.

Our Goals are to bring the organization to a national level by seeking out knowledge networks (for workshop ideas, events, well-respected spokespersons, etc.) and capital. We are determined to see our model replicated in inner cities across the United States. As we seek to scale to the national level, we must access investors, individuals, and organizations interested in building bridges between their communities, the resources available within those communities, and the sources that make decisions for said communities, with the ultimate goal of improving the lives and education of ALL children.
