Program Overview

ProJeCt's family literacy program recognizes that a parent's literacy and their attitudes and beliefs toward education significantly impact their children. The model addresses the intergenerational cycle of low literacy and economic disadvantage in at-risk families by providing a four component research-model that includes adult literacy education, parenting education and support, high quality pre-school and structured parent/child literacy opportunities. This “teach the parent, reach the child" model assists parents with their literacy skills while helping them to proficiently assume their roles as their child's first and most important teacher.
