Families Leading Change is a statewide coalition that has come together to do two things:

(1) support, fund, and train families who want to work with their principals and teachers to make their hometown schools stronger (whether that means better drug prevention, vocational programs, school gardens, early literacy, etc. – whatever the community and school decide are most needed).

(2) encourage state and federal government officials to learn from the local expertise and wisdom of families across West Virginia.

Jenny Anderson is the Director of Families Leading Change (FLC), a statewide coalition that provides opportunities for parents, students, and other family members (kinship) to have a voice in public schools. FLC supports families by offering funding to start educational programs and projects and trains families who want to work with their principals, teachers, and school staff to make their hometown schools better. These family teams also work on creating a school system change or policy on a local, state, or federal level.
