Merike Darmody is an Irish partner in an international Erasmus+ research project ALFIRK which aims to support schools to tackle early school leaving (ESL) among migrant youth by creating migrant parent empowerment networks, thereby improving collaboration between parents, schools, community organizations and local education authorities. This project will not only promote networking of schools, but will enable the networking of a variety of stakeholders who are committed to empowering migrant parents and decreasing ESL among migrant learners. This improved collaboration and increased parent empowerment will ultimately help to reduce disparities in learning outcomes affecting migrant youth throughout European school systems.
