The Liberty Bank Foundation recently presented the Bridge Family Center with $5,000 to support the Parent Leadership Training Institute (PLTI) program in West Hartford. PLTI is a 20-week course designed to help parents better understand how their local schools and governments operate, and to become more active and engaged citizens and more effective advocates for their children.
"We are very grateful for the Liberty Bank Foundation's generous support of PLTI," said Margaret A. Hann, Executive Director of the Bridge. "This program will teach parents who want to improve the lifelong health, safety, and learning of children how to become practiced change agents for the next generation. Through PLTI, they will become better parents, community leaders, and learn how to advocate effectively for the best interests of all children."
