FOUNDATIONS (EARLY CHILDHOOD TRAINING)
Studies show that students living in poverty learn significantly less vocabulary words than their more affluent peers. Many times these students begin their very first day of school behind.
Foundations seeks to address this need through early childhood literacy training for parents in underserved communities.
Our trainers meet with parents weekly to hold four (4) workshops that provide them with the skills needed to prepare their children for school. We meet with parents at local schools in the neighborhood to ensure all trainings are convenient.
During the conclusion of the program parents receive a completion certificate and developmental materials to ensure they have the tools necessary to prepare their children.
