The Parent Success Program has a strengths based ideology that places an emphasis on Wellness, Adult Education and Career Advancement, Money Management/Financial empowerment. The VMA Fatherhood Initiative has a strong Spoken Word and Artistic Expression component, and is aligned with our Visible Men Success Role Modeling Curriculum to promote engaged and responsible fatherhood.
Every Tuesday evening from 4:30 pm-7:00 pm throughout the school year, VMA offers free Parenting Classes and family dinners. Parents that participate in the program earn scholarship credits that can be used towards After School Sunshine Program Fees, Uniforms, Gas Cards, Case Management, Job Search Assistance and more. Childcare and Food is provided at every Parent Class free of charge. VMA also offers free Parent Workshops during our monthly Saturday Success events from 9:30 am-11:30 am.

The Parent Success Program is delivered through community partnerships with organizations that provide a service, expertise and mission that directly supports our families and students. Visible Men Academy was honored by it’s invitation to join the Aspen Ascend Network of Innovative Two Generation leaders committed to disrupting poverty and creating economic mobility for families.
