Parent Worker Project

Short and Long Versions

Los Angeles, CA

Through a collaboration between The UCLA Labor Center & Building Skills Partnership (BSP), the “Parent Worker Project" aims to improve educational opportunities for janitors’ families and communities. The project is training a cohort of janitor parents, union members of SEIU-United Service Workers West, who will become advocates for their children’s education. The project is being funded by the generous support of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation as part of its family engagement initiative, which aims to support children’s educational success from birth to 8 years old. The W.K. Kellogg Foundation believes every child deserves a fair chance at success in school and life.
