PSV Parent Ambassadors

What is the PSV Parent Ambassador Program?

The PSV Parent Ambassador Program allows parents the opportunity to use their leadership skills to play a central role in effectively working with educational leaders to improve the experiences of Black families in private schools. This program is essential to PSV as it empowers parents to successfully partner and advocate for children, reinforces the pride and power of community building and support, and it highlights our shared belief in a strong family-school partnership which is optimal for student achievement.


The benefits of being a PSV Parent Ambassador include:

  • increased networking opportunities & visibility among the PSV community, in the school community, and with school leaders 

  • development of leadership and advocacy skills in a small group setting 

  • increased knowledge about DEIJ and SEL (social-emotional-learning) issues and the opportunity to engage intelligently around these areas

  • the many tangible and intangible benefits of helping our community and all of our children


The Parent Ambassador Program is made up of volunteer parent leaders who are trained to engage around the program objectives which are to ensure:

  • the school community's needs for information and support from PSV are clear and communicated;

  • the PSV mission is communicated and demonstrated in the school community;

  • that the school community is aware of upcoming PSV events and similarly, PSV is aware of school events,

  • that PSV events and activities are conceptualized & supported appropriately (e.g. volunteering in many capacities),

  • that newly-enrolled families in the school know about PSV as a resource and welcomed to the community,

  • that Black teachers, administrators, faculty and staff know about PSV and are welcomed to the community,

  • that they serve as a resource for prospective families who want to learn more about the private school experience

  • increased parent knowledge about social, emotional, cultural, and educational issues that specifically impact our community​

Parent Ambassadors commit to:

  • Attending one training session in the Fall approximately 1.5 hours long 

  • Attending six virtual meetings to touch bases, prepare for various events, skill build, ask questions, etc. 

  • Attending one end-of-the-year meeting to review the year, plan for next year, etc. 

  • Serving as a resource for prospective, newly-enrolled, and current families especially during the "Mix & Mingle" event and throughout the year (being available to connect with prospective families to answer questions about the private school experience, school culture, and more 

  • Assisting in the cross communication/promotion and community-building aspects related to working collaboratively with their school and with PSV
