Family Empowerment Network (FEN)

The Alliance is built upon the belief that student success is a result of strong collaboration among children and youth, families, schools, universities, and the larger community. Incorporating the great ethnic, language, and economic diversity of our region, the Family Empowerment Network recognizes that family environments that support academic commitment and achievement lead to greater student success.  


Family Alliance Community Exchange (FACE)

With its partner school districts, The Alliance to Accelerate Excellence in Education offers an 8-week program called FACE (Family Alliance Community Exchange), which is focused on 8 Habits of Mind. The Habits of Mind are essential skills that characterize successful individuals such as curiosity, creativity, responsibility, and persistence. When families and educators create environments fostering these habits and when youth understand how to react in challenging situations, they learn how to be successful in academics, career, and life. Weekly workshop sessions are offered simultaneously for elementary, middle, and high school students as well as sessions for adults in English and Spanish.  The FACE program supports all family members to develop cognitive, social, and emotional skills to be productive and happy members of our communities.  The Alliance to Accelerate Excellence in Education facilitates the FACE program through collaboration with our Service Area School Districts.
