Family Literacy programs offer parents an opportunity to increase their education and
employability while learning to support their children's development. These programs provide four integrated
components to the family.
- Interactive literacy activities between parents and their children.
- Training for parents regarding how to be the primary teacher for their children and full partners in the
education of their children.
- Parent literacy training that leads to economic self-sufficiency.
- An age-appropriate education to prepare children for success in school and life experiences.
