Parent Leadership for a healthy democracy.


NPLI exists to coordinate and increase the civic skills and impact of diverse parents at home, in the neighborhood, and in public policy to improve child and community outcomes.

Unique Value Proposition

The NPLI represents a pioneer in developing the field of parent leadership and differentiates itself by embracing a cross-race, cross-class, parent-informed and pro-social learning approach to building parents as a constituency for community and recognizing children as the beneficiaries.
