We are particularly interested in students who have a story to tell about how attending a family literacy/family learning program has changed their lives, who developed strategies for supporting their children’s academic development, have begun to accomplish some of their employment or vocational goals, and/or have developed supportive strategies to include their extended family.  We would love to hear how through family literacy/family learning services, adult learners have found their way to economic and family success.

For more information and to submit a nomination, click here. The deadline to submit is Thursday, June 1, 2017.
