Family Engagement and Holiday Support

To truly support our kids, we believe we must also support their families. Urban Compass works hard to educate and empower our families in order to help foster long-term success.

In addition to offering our own family workshops on a variety of topics, Urban Compass continues partnering with Parent College, an educational empowerment program for parents to learn various ways to support their child’s education. Urban Compass families also visit local college and universities together as part of Family University Days to learn more about the college-going process. Special family field trips are also offered throughout the year and as well as educational workshops on student data, attendance, program successes, and important resources aimed to help impact their child’s improvement in core areas. We also recently launched our Urban Compass Family Rewards Program, which rewards parents and families for their positive engagement in Urban Compass and at their school site. Families are volunteering at Urban Compass, their school site, and showing up to meetings and events together to show their active engagement in their child’s life!

Part of our family support is our annual holiday celebration and “adopt-a-family” program, which our families look forward to each year. Knowing that our families have many needs, Urban Compass and its volunteers work hard to bring them the holiday cheer! The Urban Compass Guild helps organize our Annual Holiday Family Support Program, which culminates with an amazing holiday celebration where eager kids, siblings, and parents look forward to receiving much-needed household items, gifts for every member of the family, and a fully-stocked holiday meal basket. Each year’s festivities include food, arts and crafts, gift distribution, family photos, music, and much more, to create a shared experience of giving and receiving for all involved.
