The Hartford Parent University (HPU) is a parent-led and community collaborative 501(c)(3) independent organization that engages, empowers, mobilizes and trains parents to advocate and support not only their child’s learning but their own personal learning.
Through a series of sessions/classes offered at HPU parents will be provided an opportunity to increase their knowledge on what children are learning at school, child development, advocacy, parent leadership and parenting skills.
