Who We Are
Our Mission is to recognize, educate, enable and empower parents to take a proactive role in the educational and personal development of their children
We want to increase every child’s opportunity
Parents Step Ahead (PSA) was established to remedy the growing lack of awareness plaguing parents, especially underserved parents, which has put their children at a significant disadvantage in school and in life. Parental involvement is an essential component for children’s success of and for what is needed to close the achievement gap that is so prevalent in low-income students. PSA, a 501-C3 nonprofit organization established in 2006, has developed and applied a proven model of parental engagement.
