Supporting Our Students: It Takes Everyone

Watch Live: Supporting Students in Baltimore and Beyond

This Thursday, April 14, from 6-8 p.m. join NBC News and WBAL-TV for a live forum, “Supporting Our Students: It Takes Everyone.” UMBC alumnus Joseph T. Jones, Jr. ‘06, social work, founder, president, and CEO of Center for Urban Families will be participating in a panel called “Parents are Powerful,” discussing parental engagement and the ways in which Baltimore City and County are aiming to increase parent involvement. You can participate in live Facebook chats with the panelists.

The forum is a project of Parent Toolkit, an online, interactive resource for parents to help them “navigate their child’s journey from pre-kindergarten through high school.” Full of tips and guides, as well as growth charts and expert advice, it’s a place for parents to stay involved in their children’s education.

This special event takes place at the Baltimore Museum of Art and will be moderated by Rehema Ellis, NBC News Chief Education Correspondent, along with Dr. Tim Tooten, WBAL-TV Education Reporter.

Make sure to tune in live via parenttoolkit.com on Thursday and spread the word using #SOSevery1.
