DALLAS, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Parents Step Ahead is featured on a new blog series "El Pueblo Unido" showcasing small nonprofits that serve the Latino community. As the first organization featured in the series, many can learn about Parents Step Ahead, the work it's doing for parents, and how to get involved.  

Parents Step Ahead was established in 2006 to recognize, educate, enable and empower parents to take a proactive role in the educational and personal development of their children. "We are hoping that by partnering with Being Latino and getting the word out about Parents Step Ahead many will recognize the dire need for parental involvement in schools," said Lupita Colmenero, founder and chair of Parents Step Ahead.  

"El Pueblo Unido" is a new bi-weekly series created by Charlotte Gossett for the Being Latino blog dedicated to promoting the efforts of small nonprofit organizations that support and empower the Latino community around the nation. "I know how difficult it is for small nonprofits to have a voice and gain recognition for their grassroots efforts. I thought Being Latino was a great platform to build awareness around the organizations and their local Latino communities," states Ms. Gossett.
