The 21st Century Texas ACE Lufkin ISD Program is partnering with a national educational nonprofit, RezilientKidz, to present the Raising Highly Capable Kids parenting program to parents and caregivers in Lufkin.

Raising Highly Capable Kids (RHCK) is a 13-week evidence-based parenting program developed to build stronger families by empowering parents with the confidence, tools, and skills they need to raise their children to be healthy, caring, and responsible adults. The program increases parents’ knowledge and skill level of the essential building blocks every child needs — the 40 Developmental Assets from Search Institute, which are proven to increase childhood resiliency and academic achievement. The program requires volunteer facilitators to teach the classes.


These are boots-on-the-ground community members who will be trained and equipped to facilitate the program. They can be parents, teachers, community leaders, etc. To ensure an effective launch and sustainability of the program, we continue to provide ongoing support and resources for this essential team.


The 21st Century Texas ACE Lufkin ISD Program is in search of strategic partners to execute this grant. To find out more on how to get involved or learn how to be a facilitator, please attend the following meetings:
