Education

Parents as Teachers

The United Way Parents as Teachers program is a free, evidence-based program that supports parents and caregivers of children between the ages of 0 and 5 in becoming their child’s first and best teacher. Parent Educators conduct home visits focused on providing parents with guidance about child development through educational and fun activities. The program focuses on ensuring children meet important developmental milestones to improve school readiness. Participants also gain access to a supportive network, unique events, resources and more. The PAT program is a part of the HOPES collaborative led by El Paso Center for Children and partly supported by AmeriCorps service members as a part of a OneStar Foundation grant.
