What are the best programs you've seen/used to increase awareness and engagement amongst families? Specifically, if you are working within public organizations such as a YMCA or Boys and Girls Club.

Try combining activities - for example, do a family fun activity where the child & parent can participate together. Then provide education (booth, mini presentation, handouts, etc) at the same activity. We've found that parents are more inclined to get involved when they can participate WITH their child. Oh, and if possible provide food and door prizes.
