Jackson Kayak Parental Engagement


WCTE launched a parental engagement program with a local company, Jackson Kayak, to reach at-risk families in the workplace. The parents who are employed by the company needed support and hands on training to improve their ability to parent their children to help them prepare for school and life. Twenty-five parents now attend monthly lunchtime sessions with each session centered around PBS KIDS programs, activities, and take-home projects to provide engagement moments with their kids.
