Join our Facebook Parent group!

In addition to parent engagement talks at tech companies, we are also in the community. Each year, we give presentations at two parent meetings at two elementary schools. We feel it is important to start early.

If you would like for us to speak to your parent group at your school, please reach out to maestro@yacanex.com.

“If you come to Katherine Smith school, you are going to college.” These are the words of this prestigious school principal. Keeping that attitude as first priority, we engage with the school’s weekly parent meetings, “Parent Pride”.
“Madre a Madre” is a weekly discussion group for mothers of children attending the Washington Elementary School, in which we have the honor to participate as speakers. In these sessions, mothers can learn how to get more involved in their children education, and they are also part of a community network that brings growth to the neighborhood.
