Million Parent Wake-up challenge coming to a community near you!

Two Moms Travel the U.S. Empowering Parents to navigate their children’s educational journey. —

San Diego, CA (BlackNews.com) — The statistics are alarming. If you believe them– African American children have a better chance of ending up in jail than in college. Because of the downturn in the economy and school districts cutting everywhere – there is no way to rely on teachers and counselors for your child’s success. It is time for parents to take the reins.

But how? How do you navigate your school system? How do you fight for your child’s grades, success and opportunities to get them set on a good life path? Darlene Willis and Marsha Dodson are teaching parents how. They are working with school districts and parents all over the country with poetry, music, “reality statistics” and real life stories and solutions to tell their story. Parents feel empowered to take control and NOT lectured to.

They also take control in their own community with the award winning program College Bound San Diego. Over the last 10 years, they have worked with parents and students and have a 100% success rate. Every child in their program has had the opportunity to go to college.

The goal of the Wake-Up Challenge is to reach one million parents… reach them and teach them!
