Education Systems Navigator

No parent should have to face the education system alone.

We know that the education system is not designed to serve Black students.

Our Systems Navigation pilot project is designed to stand beside you as you ‘navigate’ the system.

When Black families contact Parents of Black Children about issues related to their child’s education, our Systems Navigator will provide support as they interact with their child’s school/board.

The Systems Navigator may attend meetings, provide advice, make connections with Teacher Liaisons at various school boards or community groups, and more.The Systems Navigator will help eliminate barriers and act as a neutral third party, outside of the system, who can express the unique needs and challenges faced by African Canadian families engaged with the education system.
