Back of the Yards Parent University at Richards Career Academy High School

The Chicago Public School Parent University is an innovative educational model that promotes learning for parents of CPS students through a holistic multi-generational approach, taking families’ challenges, needs, and educational goals into account for the maximum impact on student success.

The program teaches valuable skills and knowledge that benefit both families and children and promotes an inclusive school culture, helping participants to feel welcome and valued in their school community. Our workshops focus on parenting skills, budgeting, First Aid CPR certification, and more!

Each program site includes a parent resource room and a computer lab, which offers programs centering on school, job and life skills.
