Our family literacy program: Strengthening generations.
The Family Literacy Program serves parents and their children up to age 12. While the parents attend ESL classes with paid instructors, their children participate in age-appropriate educational activities. The programs are held at Channing Elementary School in Elgin and Golfview Elementary School in Carpentersville. In Fiscal Year 2014, 61 adults and 85 of their children participated in the program.
This project was made possible by a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a division of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds designated for literacy.
