The Family Literacy Program has three basic components:
- Adult Education which includes instruction from a PA-Certified Teacher in the areas of reading, writing, problem-solving, math skills, GED preparation, job skills training and/or English as a Second Language
- Parenting Education which helps families actively participate in their children’s education at home and at school
- Early Childhood Education which is for preschoolers through the agency’s Early Head Start, Head Start and Pre K Counts programs
In addition to their teachers, families will also be partnered with a trained cased manager who will work with them on job development and trade school or college enrollment procedures.
Current program sites are in Canonsburg, Donora, Washington and Waynesburg.
In order to participate in the program, families must have one or more children ages birth through the third grade; contact Blueprints for additional information.
