Family Education Events
Arizona Kids THINK Too offers family education nights in conjunction with its academic tutoring and B.O.L.T. programs. The goal of these meetings is to provide parents with strategies and materials for working with their children at home and to spend time in a school setting with their families.
An activity or game will be played and full participation from family members and students is encouraged. Youth participants will also have the opportunity to demonstrate the leadership skills they have acquired in the B.O.L.T. program by means of a creative presentation to parents. A meal is served at these events and a large raffle at the end of the evening lets parents and children enjoy gifts provided by our community partners.
Guest speakers may attend to address topics such as education, safety, and financial services.
