WHAT IS THE PLTI?

The Parent Leadership Training Institute (PLTI) is a free, 12-week online course that teaches parents to identify community challenges and work toward solutions by understanding local and state governments and the public education system. PLTI students learn leadership, communication and public speaking skills. To bring positive changes to schools and communities, they develop a project that benefits other children and families. The course offers five, free elective college credits for those who graduate.

Are you an educator?
