REFUGEE FAMILY LITERACY: Support Education and Literacy Programs

Our mother and child education classes serve over 250 students and 125 adult learners through a family literacy approach. While mothers learn English, their children develop language and school-readiness skills through interaction with trained early childhood teachers. Mothers gain exposure to literacy-learning techniques modeled in the Parent-child class, which they then reinforce at home. In this way, the parent and child learn together.  RFL welcomes support with school supplies and developmental resources for students.
