Family Literacy Program

The free Family Literacy program consists of interactive workshops where the whole family can discover exciting books together, work on creative projects, and learn games that build language and literacy skills. Our program is designed to improve the educational and economic opportunities of the children by:

  1. Helping children reach their full potential as learners
  2. Providing literacy skills for their parents
  3. Helping parents become full partners in the education of their children

Dates: Tuesdays and Thursdays during school year (excluding school breaks)
Times: 6 - 7:30pm
Location: The Y (54 Nagle Ave)
Cost: $10 to register. Attend a minimum of 10 classes for reimbursement
