In 2021 NTE launched a formal effort to codify and implement a model for family engagement that promotes print and digital literacy, family leadership, and warm connections to services and supports available in the city, as well as the county and the state. 

NTE has begun integrating family engagement and leadership in new initiatives through the following five-pronged approach: 1) Share information on the state of the city; 2) Provide input on program design; 3) Provide input on program implementation; 4) Participate in decision-making about future programs, and 5) Advocate for systems change.
