Family Literacy Program - a United Way of SCC funded program
Where parents and children learn together.
What better way to integrate a much-needed literacy program for parents and children than through a unique Family Literacy Program that celebrates the participants’ culture, heritage and family commitment, while achieving Spanish and English proficiency.
For adults, the program aims to strengthen and improve literacy skills in their native language as well as beginning the process of learning English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL).
This literacy development curriculum works hand-in-hand in developing job skills through computer activities performed both with and without their children.
For the children, the program is centered on pre-reading skills and Spanish and English language development.
