NCFL meets with the Salvation Army

Last week, Sharon Darling, Janet Fulton and I had the chance to travel to Atlanta and meet with representatives from the Salvation Army.  The Salvation Army has implemented family literacy programming in two cities, Atlanta and Louisville. During our meeting together, we reviewed the outcomes of our partnership thus far and brainstormed ideas for the future.  This initiative to work with nontraditional family literacy partners, like the Salvation Army, has been funded for the past two years by the UPS Foundation.  

One exciting outcome is a Summer Curriculum, which is now available on our Web site. The curriculum uses the dramatic arts to increase literacy skills and has verifiable literacy outcomes for participants.  Summer is fast approaching, so get some ideas for your programs!
