Summary Parents4all project is to raise awareness, empower, and develop the intercultural competences among parents of the host society and ethnic and cultural minorities (ECM) parents in order to enable them to contribute effectively to the social inclusion of ECM school-age children.

The specific objectives of the project are:

  • Actively involve parents in the design of effective interventions for ECM social inclusion;
  • Create tailor-made training material for parents from the host societies in order to effectively deal with diversity and support school activities for social inclusion;
  • Create empowering training material for ECM parents in order to be able to better support their children in the integration process and effectively collaborate with school staff;
  • Raise awareness among parents of both target groups through the production of inspiring audiovisual material;
  • Make recommendations to stakeholders of education and social inclusion for a sustainable intervention methodology addressing parents;
  • Promote the notion that parental engagement for social inclusion is a collaborative, reciprocal, and mutually rewarding process.
The training materials prepared by the project partners are already available on the project website! This material, as well as the self-assessment toolkit for intercultural competences, and awareness-raising audiovisual material, were presented at the final conference of the project  “Migrant and Refugee Integration as a Two-Way Process: Opportunities and Challenges in Education” in Athens. You can see the participants of the conference and the photos here.
