The Family Literacy Program has four basic components:
- Adult Education which includes instruction in the areas of reading, writing, problem-solving, math skills, high-school equivalency preparation and/or job skills training
- Parenting Education which helps families actively participate in their children’s education at home and at school
- Interactive Literacy Activities where parents learn alongside their children through engaging activities
- Early Childhood Education which is for preschoolers through the agency’s Early Head Start, Head Start and Pre K Counts programs and/or an area elementary school (for children in grades Kindergarten through 3rd)
In addition to their teachers, families will also be partnered with a trained case manager who will work with them on job development and trade school or college enrollment procedures.
Current program sites are in 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.
