About Parent Ambassadors Program

Hayward Unified School District (HUSD), in partnership with La Familia, provide HUSD parents and guardians with the opportunity to develop leadership and advocacy skills while supporting parent engagement and the academic success of HUSD students.  The Parent Ambassador program helps increase the district’s capacity to build a community of leaders that support outreach to parents and families, and refer and link youth and their families in HUSD to health services and other school site programs and resources.  The Ambassadors are a representative body that act as a liaison between the district and the parent community with an overall goal of supporting the educational success of all students and promoting parent voice.
