Parent Advisory Committee

Our Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) is a dedicated group of parents and family members who come together in order to further the college conversation in public spaces. Parent to parent, PAC reaches out in our community to form a welcoming and informed group, all cheering on our local kids toward academic success.

PAC meets on the second and fourth Thursday of each month, at the El Monte Promise Foundation Office in the Jeff Seymour Family Center.


Parents, local community members, and local community organizers meet with the El Monte Promise Foundation in support of the foundation's mission. Our mission together is to ensure a college-ready culture in the El Monte region and surrounding communities.


The Parent Advisory Committee uses the Promotora Model in promoting El Monte Promise Foundation's work and the Scholars Savings Program. The Parent Advisory Committee goals include boosting awareness about local college resources, community events, and opportunities for families in the community.


All meetings run on a rotating leadership model. Committee members voluntarily take turns in this rotating leadership role in order to forward each meetings' objectives.


Committee members meet at least once a month. For the most current meeting dates and locations please see our events page.
