ACC believes that parents are the first teachers of their children. Knowing this we strive to partner with families to support parent literacy, education and engagement in various ways. ACC’s parents participate in many activities which include attending monthly parent meetings, quarterly nutritional classes for parents, Early childhood Education training and fundraising events.
ACC’s Community Resource Center was newly created to augment the support and engagement of parent in partnership with other organizations. One important goal of Academia Cesar Chavez (ACC) was to develop a Community Resource Center (CRC) to provide high quality support for families. ACC completed a building renovation projects in September 2016 and has a Community Resource Room (CRR). Mardi Dominguez the original cofounder continues to work at ACC. As the Family and Community Director, she coordinates all activities in the CRC. Families have access to the state of the art commercial kitchen, gymnasium and are able to participate in physical activities, health and nutrition, education and employment skills.
