The following are a few facts about our students and the impact the Literacy Program has on their families:
- More than 60% of our students are parents, and 78% of our students are women. Besides Basic English Language skills, we teach four targeted programs that we call Life Survival Skills: (1) Emergencies and Safety, (2) Access to Health Care, (3) Nutrition, and (4) Parent/Teacher Interaction.
- The first three programs teach vocabulary that is important for families to stay healthy. Healthy families are more likely to have children who don’t miss school. They are more likely to have parents who are more productive at work, more likely to get promoted, and more likely to reach their full potential as parents and members of the community.
- The fourth module, Parent/Teacher Interaction, teaches vocabulary to help students engage in their child’s education. Parents often say that they want to improve their language skills so that they can assist with their children’s homework and interact with their children’s teacher. Parental reading level is the most highly correlated predictor of a student’s success or failure in school.
