Parent literacy together

Welcome to parent literacy together

We are excited to announce our FREE virtual Parent Literacy class!

We want to help you:

  • Feel empowered in learning activities at home with your child.
  • Learn specific methods to support your children’s literacy skills.
  • Boost your home literacy environment.

Parent Literacy Together is a Multi-Generational Learning program that helps parents become more engaged in their children’s learning. Sessions are led by trained family literacy experts and include activities that will empower parents to become more confident “first teachers” of their children. Registered parents will receive a “Your Home School” kit, filled with age-appropriate books, learning activities, and other supplies to help create fun learning experiences with children.

Tuesdays, Starting April 2021

6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. 

For questions or to register, email Lauren Kiesling or call (269) 348-0480.

Parent Coalition 

These monthly online meetings are the perfect place to have your voice heard. We want you, as parent leaders, to tell us what you need to be successful. What do you love about our programs? What do you need more of? Is there something we’re missing? With your strong voices, we can better serve you. You will also have the opportunity to connect with other parents who want to share their ideas and participate in parent-led initiatives based around your passions.

4th Tuesdays, starting January 26th, 7:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. 

4th Thursdays, starting January 28th, 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Parent Literacy Forum

Parents work with experts to learn about literacy activities that can help their children succeed. During these monthly online meetings, parents learn more about our program and other services.
