Connections: How parents can become active change agents in communities

Jul 24, 2019

The Greater Rochester Parent Leadership Training Institute was founded in 2012, and since then, its alumni have worked to enact a number of changes in the community.

This hour, we hear from local parents who have become active citizens working to alleviate bullying, poverty, and discrimination in schools, recreation activities, and more. We also talk to them about a number of issues related to parenting in Rochester in 2019.
