This is a new program that will pair experienced Metro Schools parents with New American families who are new to Nashville schools. Parent Ambassadors will provide families with information and guidance on navigating the school system. They will also serve as advisors to the district, assisting school leaders on policies and practices that ease the transition into schools for new families and their students.

Parent Ambassadors will be paired with New American families who are from their same home country and/or speak the same language.  They will receive free training from several departments within Metro Schools and begin working with New American families in September.

If all that sounds good to you, please sign up to be a Parent Ambassador!
