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.

Hours of operation: Center Hrs. 9 AM-4:30 PM; Class Hrs. Mon.-Thurs. 9:30 AM - 1:30 PM & Mon.-Weds. 6:30 PM-9:00 PM

Cost info: There is no cost for this program. Families with children from 3 months to 8 years who demonstrate low income and want to improve basic literacy skills in order to support a rich literacy home environment, improve employability, and prepare for responsible citizenship are eligible. They must demonstrate a readiness to participate and achieve goals. ProJeCt has basic eligibility requirements of educational and financial need.
