Page 8 MPN 20142015 Impact Report Goal 4 Families are Decision Makers Families are critical to our collective success. MPN partners with Parents for Public Schools and Mission Graduates organizations which place parents at the center of their work. MPN works with promotoras who are at the forefront of community outreach and education talking to other parents about MPN and connecting them with community resources. The promotoras were also an integral part of MPNs 2014 Neighborhood Survey directly involved in getting community participation for the research. In 2015 MPN launched the Community Advisory Council CAC a 12-member council of MPN parents who provide their leadership experience and perspective to guide future MPN activities and outcomes. CAC will pursue strategies to improve academic performance school attendance and college preparation. The Mission Promise Neighborhood harnesses the power of promotoras community outreach workers to educate families about all free services available in the Mission.
