family leadership collaborative

We believe that the family is the basic unit of any society. However it is shaped, a strong, healthy, united and conscientious family creates leadership and success at the individual, family and community levels.

Poder Familiar Family Leadership Collaborative was formed through struggles to achieve educational equity and justice, have appropriate representation at the local government level, and achieve adequate services for our community.

We are working on several projects with our parent and family leaders including Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors Training Sessions, Community Goals, Cuerdas del Corazón as well as hosting many more events throughout the year!

We also facilitate and build family leadership in public and community education. Earth Care continues it’s critical role in building leadership capacity for family engagement in schools, in creating transformation educational experiences for youth and families, and working with schools and the district to create equitable and just learning environments.

Upcoming Workshops


  • Time/Fecha To Be Announced!
    Tema: Growing Up NM- Visitantes de casa
    Cubriendo el período de desarrollo más crítico en la vida de un niño, el programa de visitas domiciliarias de Growing Up New Mexico ofrece un plan de estudios integrado de apoyo y recursos que informan una vida familiar segura, saludable y estable. Abierto a todas las familias de los condados de Santa Fe y Río Arriba, nuestro programa de visitas domiciliarias puede comenzar antes del nacimiento y continuar hasta los cinco años. Durante las visitas iniciales, los visitantes domiciliarios capacitados ayudan a los padres, cuidadores y familias a dominar la alimentación, el cuidado y el vínculo con un nuevo bebé. Una vez que se establece un crecimiento y desarrollo saludables, las visitas domiciliarias se expanden para construir una base para el aprendizaje temprano, la alfabetización y el crecimiento socioemocional.

I am currently a teacher's assistant in a preschool, coordinator and I have been a facilitator of Abriendo Puertas for about 4 years. I am also the mother of an 11-year-old girl and an 8-year-old boy, I am a wife, student and housewife. My favorite hobbies are traveling and walking with my family, reading and walking through natural places.

I am pleased to help my community and help parents who are looking for a better parenting for their children. I have been a member of Poder Familiar for 5 years, I started taking the Abriendo Puertas course and that opened the way for me to study early childhood education. I am pleased to be a part of this beautiful program.
