FASTLogo(Families and Schools Together Program)
The Families And Schools Together (FAST) Program is a program that is implemented by parents working alongside professionals to increase child well-being, parent involvement in school and social capital. FAST is recognized for its ability to engage parents in school activities. However 80% of the parents that come once will graduate from the program. This program empowered parents to continue to run their monthly meetings with other parents. FAST is based on community organizing strategies and Title 1 funds may be used to support the FAST program. The participants’ needs are determined by the school which includes strengthening connections between families and the school.
