ParentPowerChicago Fills an Important Need

“If there’s one overarching lesson from the past few decades of research
about how to break the cycle of poverty in the United States,
it’s the power of PARENTING….”  
Nicholas Kristof, New York Times

We Make Powerful Connections


ParentPowerChicago, Inc. was formed to help break the cycle of poverty by empowering parents so that they can help their children be successful in school and in life. We are an independent, non-profit organization that provides parents with information, resources, peer support and motivation that inspires and enables them to improve their children’s academic outcomes.

Through ParentPowerChicago, parents can access a wide range of support: tutoring, homework help, on-line teaching, mentoring and more. For children interested in music and the arts, we connect parents to a wide range of cultural programs throughout the city. We also help them understand their school options and find available financial aid and scholarships for kindergarten through college.

Membership in ParentPowerChicago is free to all parents. We invite others to help break the cycles of poverty by supporting our work to empower every parent in our city to be actively engaged with their children’s education. Help us create a city in which every parent is a POWER PARENT.
