The Philadelphia Parent Innovation institute will bring early childhood organizations and the families they serve together to learn human-centered design so they can strengthen family engagement in early literacy and language programs for Philadelphia’s youngest learners.
Between April 2020-May 2021, organization representatives and parents they support will work collaboratively in small teams and identify a challenge they would like to solve together. The teams will be guided through a design process that involves co-designing and rapid-cycle learning to create high impact solutions that support quality early childhood experiences — and meet the real needs of families with young children.
After the institute, teams will work with a local continuity partner, First Up, to continue to support an ecosystem of innovative family engagement in Philadelphia.
