"My experience in the Family Literacy program has been great! When I started, I had a lot of mixed feelings -- I was nervous and unsure about going back to school as an adult. But then I was greeted by my teacher, who made me feel welcome and told me from the very first day I could do anything I set my mind to! Working in this program alongside my children has been a blessing; my youngest daughter loves 'coming to school' with mom!" - Korean H.

Children First Family Literacy GED Program

The Children First Family Literacy Program is the only comprehensive family literacy program of its kind in the area, and the only one that educates the entire family.  We believe this holistic approach to teaching and learning helps foster an environment where all family members recognize and embrace the importance of enhancing literacy skills.  With ongoing family literacy education comes the realization by our parents that they truly can and do have a profound impact on the achievements and successes of their children.
