Vision Statement

We aspire to a future where all Duval children are reading at or above grade level by the end of third grade.




"I am tremendously grateful for the Parents Who Lead platform. The facilitators are excellent at disseminating the training material provided, thus; contributing to the knowledge retained. I am happy to have been presented with this opportunity to continue my mission to effect growth in the lives of others. The PWL platform has given me a wealth of experience and expanded my knowledge of civic leadership, engagement and Advocacy development. I am very excited to attend the classes as I always leave feeling equipped and ready for impact. I am eager to serve as my purpose is to give the best of me to help others live a more harmonious life. Thank you PWL for Empowering us so we can empower others."
