FREE Family Literacy Training Sessions

Learn how to use everyday family activities to help children become better learners and readers using stories from the rich Latino cultures and traditions in Lee y serás: Family Album's FREE two-day training sessions available the beginning of 2008. These training sessions are brought to you by GPB Education and the Department of Technical and Adult Education's Office of Adult Literacy in partnership with Scholastic, the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) and Verizon.

Lee y serás® is a national Latino early literacy initiative that empowers and engages families and communities to foster children's literacy development. By providing research-based, in-culture, and bilingual curricula and materials for families, childcare providers and leaders, the program's goal is to create long-term attitudinal and behavioral change in an effort to help close the education achievement gap.

If you are interested in attending these training sessions, please contact Carol Veatch at Seating is limited.
