Purdue University is examining the impact of enhancements on participation and engagement in the Parenting Our Children to Excellence (PACE) program. PACE is a group intervention program for parents and caregivers of preschool children. The University will examine partnership (organizational involvement in recruitment and retention), cash incentives, and motivated action plans (setting clear goals and making specific plans for goal attainment). Families with socioeconomic disadvantages are being recruited through preschools and day care centers.
