The State of Connecticut has created a successful statewide family civics initiative, the Parent Leadership Training Institute (PLTI), building the capacity of thousands of parents to become civic leaders for positive child outcomes. Connecticut created PLTI to offer parents a democracy toolkit, skills, and the confidence to effect change for public good within a civic context. PLTI is undergoing national replication, as states and civic bodies seek the Connecticut state model.
