Executive Summary

The mission of the Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) is to help parents learn how to help their preschool child enter school with knowledge and skills needed to succeed. Research proves that parent involvement has a positive effect on student achievement and parental effort is associated with higher levels of achievement. Using a 30 week curriculum, AmeriCorps members will role play activities with parents to help them prepare their child for success in school and life.
