We do this by providing family-based literacy workshops that help strengthen the shared learning experiences within the family and the community.
Topics to be discussed:
- Aligning an organization’s mission with the needs identified by the community.
- Techniques for establishing partnerships with organizations that share your values.
- Strategies for empowering your community/families.
- Assessing and evaluating your work.
