We believe in the power of families.
Parents and families represent critical stakeholders who make a difference in the lives of students.
Our advocacy offerings are designed to help individuals who currently have a child enrolled in a Washington state charter public school become a leader in their school while also developing civic engagement skills to advocate for all students.

“We need fewer excuses, political fighting and finger pointing and greater prioritization to ensure we have all the tools to close gaps and deliver an equitable, quality education to Washington’s Black students and students of color.”

“Before Impact, I didn’t have a choice of where my daughter would go to school and that terrified me because our assigned school was not what I wanted. Impact has gone beyond the call of duty. Not only are they teaching my daughter how to read, spell, and learn science and math, they are focused on her emotional well-being too. She loves her school! Every time she is picked up she always asks for five more minutes!”
