    Solutions Webinar – How to Increase & Monitor Family Engagement (and In-Kind) While We’re Virtual

    Presented by Jasmine Taylor, President & CEO – Kindly

    In the midst of a pandemic, agencies have spent the past year pivoting to online learning; leaving many administrators wondering what family engagement actually looks like at home. The good news is, with your assistance, parents have been given tools, guidance, and support to help with their little one’s continued development during this unprecedented time. But how do you capture this engagement (and the tons of in-kind they’ve generated in the process)? One agency we spoke with asks parents to take photos of their reading logs then text them to staff to process and manage. Text messages from hundreds of families each week have to pass through the hands of multiple staff members, get translated into emails, and then input into their system to be calculated manually. Thankfully, there’s a better way! FINALLY, there is an in-kind management software combined with child development and family engagement in ONE POWERFUL system!
