If you are an organization that serves families or schools, adopt VELO GROUP as your own program! The program is culturally relevant for parents with children ages 0-5, is based on popular education, and is proven to lead to school success. VELO GROUP uses a two-generation approach and was created in partnership with parents to develop parent leadership, skills, and knowledge to promote family wellness. It is taught mostly in English and Spanish, and is one of the only programs that teaches early math in Spanish.

Adapt, innovate and apply what works best for the VELO GROUP program in your community. The program reflects the culture and reality of diverse families and incorporates data about local schools and services. It works even better when you connect with local opportunities, advocacy efforts, and resources.
Join the national network of VELO GROUP partners who honor and invest in parent leadership, build on their existing strengths, and see them lead the way to positive outcomes for their young children. Partners report long-term family involvement as a result of the VELO GROUP program as parents find an “organizing home” and ample opportunities for leadership in the community.
Take the next step:
Contact VELO GROUP National to find out how your organization or school can participate in a three-day VELO GROUP Institute to purchase the program for ongoing use, build on it within your own context, and join us to an active national network dedicated to training parent leaders. If you already have the program, but want training on the newer modules (Early Math, Positive Technology, Transition to Kindergarten, Impact Tool, and more), VELO GROUP also offers a two-day Institute to train on these new modules.
