Meet Our Family Liaisons

College Crusade Family Liaisons are our local representatives in the communities where our students live. Family Liaisons meet together regularly to share ideas and to give feedback to our staff. They provide families of Crusaders with information about our programs, help run our Family Engagement workshops, and keep parents informed about the many college-readiness activities that are available to them as members of our organization.

“My experience as a family liaison for The College Crusade has been very beneficial. It has helped me understand the program a lot more so I can help my daughter take advantage of it. But the most important thing is that I can help other families understand The College Crusade’s philosophy and encourage them to motivate their children to participate in the activities. I can spread the word that this is a magnificent program that members can use to become more successful in their journey through school.”

– Claudia’s daughter is a Crusader who attends school in Pawtucket.
