Parents4all / Parents for All

Informacija lietuvių kalba ruošiama...

A main challenge for the increasingly multicultural Europe, amidst the ongoing refugee crisis, is the smooth social integration of ethnic and cultural minorities (ECM), including their children. Migrant integration takes place at multiple levels, and one of the most sensitive fields is that of school education. There are many interventions focusing on teacher competence, the concept of intercultural education, and diversity management in the classroom. However, another important factor affecting the integration process is parental engagement and attitude. Both parents from the host societies and ECM parents have direct influence on the attitude, behavior and performance of their children, and consequently the integration process as a whole. Positive parental engagement is of paramount importance for the social inclusion of ECM children.

For this reason, the overall objective of the Parents4all project is to raise awareness, empower, and develop the intercultural competences among parents of the host society and ECM parents in order to enable them to contribute effectively to the social inclusion of ECM school-age children. The specific objectives of the project are to:

- Actively involve parents in the design of effective interventions for ECM social inclusion
- Create tailor-made training material for parents from the host societies in order to effectively deal with diversity and support school activities for social inclusion
- Create empowering training material for ECM parents in order to be able to better support their children in the integration process and effectively collaborate with school staff
- Create an effective self-assessment methodology for parents regarding intercultural skills and ECM pupil inclusion
- Raise awareness among parents of both target groups through the production of inspiring audiovisual material
- Make recommendations to stakeholders of education and social inclusion for a sustainable intervention methodology addressing parents
- Promote the notion that parental engagement for social inclusion is a collaborative, reciprocal, and mutually rewarding process

The target groups to be directly addressed through this project are a) parents from the host societies, b) ECM parents, and c) stakeholders of education and social inclusion.
