Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors to Two Generations

Commitment by

Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors

In 2016, Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors (AP) and its partners committed to reach more than 12,500 parents over 18 months with an initiative that adds four content areas to the current AP curriculum: early math skills development; comprehension of the rights of dual language learners in the school system; keys to a successful transition to kindergarten; and parental use of technology. Through its three-day “Training of Trainers” Institutes, AP will prepare and certify 250 community partners to deliver its bilingual curriculum and additional resources throughout the U.S. The institutes will be held in high-need communities and leverage partnerships with migrant Head Start centers, school districts, housing authorities, and various other organizations. AP will measure parent and caregiver results through a pre- and post-test to be developed by outside evaluators.
