Celebrate families learning together this November
Families and the staff who serve them work hard all year to help parents and children earn the skills necessary to prosper. It’s time to celebrate your accomplishments!
The National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) and our partners in the field recognize that two-generation family literacy programming is a powerful approach to help parents and children find greater success academically and economically. Each November—designated National Family Literacy Month®—we celebrate families who are working to better their lives and the tireless efforts of those working in family literacy and family-focused programs.
“Every day across the country parents are experiencing hope and optimism for their futures because they are gaining valuable literacy and employability skills that empower them to contribute to their communities and achieve economic self-sufficiency through the NCFL Family Learning model.” says NCFL President and Founder, Sharon Darling. “Children are seeing their parents work hard and reap the benefits. NCFL is seeing families lift themselves out of poverty, breaking a long-standing cycle.”
Throughout the month of November, NCFL will share stories of determination and success from adult learners whom we have served through our family literacy programs on our Hotspot for Families Learning blog and on social media. Our month-long celebration will culminate in a Twitter chat on Thursday, November 30, using #familyliteracymonth.
We hope you’ll join the celebration! Using #familyliteracymonth on Twitter and Facebook, share why family literacy is important to you, how it has impacted your life or those around you, or what you are doing to celebrate National Family Literacy Month.
