Welcome to the Promoting Immigrant Voices in Education (PIVE) Blog! Please check back for updates on our latest news and events. Thanks for your support!
PIVE's mission is to promote the meaningful and active participation of immigrant parents in NYC public schools.
We believe that the involvement of informed and engaged parents can raise educational outcomes in immigrant communities and create change within schools.
By collaborating with schools and community groups, PIVE works to
educate immigrant parents on their rights in schools, to help
them become more familiar with the culture of the U.S.
education system, and to empower them to become the leaders and advocates within the school community.
We also support youth leadership development and higher education as an attainable goal for all immigrant students.

As of now, we have been connecting with amazing potential volunteers. We also met with officials from the DOE Translation & Intepretation Unit. We have a list of possible schools and we will begin making calls next week, when the schools re-open after spring break.
Thanks for all of your support!
