Denise M. Jones, President, is a meeting facilitator, instructional designer and facilitator of K12 education and workforce development support training for parents and students. She has been an ardent supporter for parent advocacy and student achievement, especially targeting families of color, and parents in particular to encourage them to walk the school journey with their children. Denise's interest was fostered by her family's commitment to education, recognizing it as a pathway to success, and the rich discussion around the family dinner table. Her own parenting journey ignited her passion through advocacy for her child and for others in the schoolhouse who may not have had a voice. In serving on the PTA leadership team, it was there that she learned a valuable lesson that has become a professional motto for academic advocacy: Raise the bar and close the gap through parent empowerment. Parents’ school networks are invaluable because collaborative engagement best serves our youth and families.

In her work for community, youth and adult capacity building, Ms. Jones has been a member of the Montgomery County NAACP Parents Council, served as the NAACP Parents Council Representative on the PTA leadership team of two schools as well as their School Improvement Teams; and served four years on the Deputy Superintendent’s Minority Achievement Advisory Council of Montgomery County Public Schools. She was also the past Chair of the Parents of Children of Color Committee of The Holton-Arms School Parents Association. Denise’s commitment to parents and adult empowerment has been further fostered as a teacher of adult learners in Prince Georges County Public Schools and Prince Georges Community College; a facilitator for the Safe Silver Spring Summit conference; a training facilitator for Juvenile Justice Family Advocacy Initiative Resource; and as a consultant for the Impact in the Schools Initiative of Impact Silver Spring a capacity building community organizing non-profit in Montgomery County, MD.

Ms. Jones has designed and delivered trainings in MCPS schools, for the National Council of Negro Women, Community Preservation and Development Corporation, Takoma Park Youth Collaborative, Carpe Diem Arts, Montgomery County Collaboration Council and other community serving organizations.
