What are Natural Leaders?



Natural Leaders are multi-cultural families who want to learn more about the education system to support partnerships between families, communities, and schools.


They are leaders in their community that work as a team with family advocates, family support centers, and school staff to:

1. Build relationships with families
2. Listen to families ideas on how to help their children be successful in school
3. Bring families and schools together to plan/implement the families' ideas

Natural Leaders Celebration

Thursday, June 2nd, 5:30pm

20420 68th Avenue West

Lynnwood, WA

This year we are doing a drive-thru celebration!


We know everyone wants to go back to in-person celebration but this year we are only able to coordinate a drive-thru celebration.


We are inviting Natural Leaders to come to our district building to receive their certificate and a treat as a sign of appreciation from our team!


We look forward to seeing you and being able to celebrate all your amazing support!
