Parent Committee

Purpose

The Parent Committee is a very important part of Pathways Milwaukee and is the means by which parents come together and make decisions about activities for themselves and for their children. The Parent Committee is made up of parents of children who are enrolled. Parents are a great resource to the Pathways program, and we need parents to be involved. Many studies show that children do better in school when their parents are involved in their education. By becoming involved in Pathways Milwaukee, you show your child that learning and sharing are important. The more time you spend volunteering at Pathways Milwaukee, the more successful your child is likely to be, and the better our program will be.
