Promoting Immigrant Voices in Education (PIVE)
PIVE's mission is to promote the meaningful and active participation of immigrant parents in NYC public schools.
We believe that the involvement of informed and engaged parents can raise educational outcomes in immigrant communities and create change within schools.
By collaborating with schools and community groups, PIVE works to educate immigrant parents on their rights in schools, to help them become more familiar with the culture of the U.S. education system, and to empower them to become the leaders and advocates within the school community.
We also support youth leadership development and higher education as an attainable goal for all immigrant students. OUR HISTORY
PIVE was founded in the spring of 2007 by three NYU students after winning the grand prize in a university-wide contest held by the funder Youth Venture.
