Without family voices, our schools and healthcare settings cannot succeed in providing excellent, equitable outcomes.

Parents often don’t know where to begin when it comes to advocating for their children in the school and healthcare settings. Madvocator provides evidence-based training and tools to families who want to collaborate for better educational outcomes and for safer, more responsive healthcare.

In both the school and healthcare settings, family engagement and activation lead to better outcomes. When families understand what true engagement looks like, they can participate and partner to a higher degree.

Madvocator’s school and healthcare advocacy programs help families build critical thinking skills that lead to mutually beneficial relationships that promote the best outcomes.

  • Building Partnerships Advocacy Series
