About The Charity: Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters – known as HIPPY – partners with parents to prepare their children for success in school, particularly those most at risk because of poverty, parents’ limited education, social isolation and lack of English proficiency. HIPPY is an evidenced-based family strengthening/engagement model that works directly with parents in their homes to give them books, activities and skills needed to prepare their children for success in school and beyond. Peer home visitors deliver 30 weeks of high-quality school readiness curriculum activities and books directly to parents, who then work each day with their own three, four and five-year-old children.
Virtual Strides Partner Event: This event is part of the Virtual Strides Partners Program. HIPPY USA will receive 100% of the net proceeds from this event after Virtual Strides’ partner costs are deducted.
