Take a Look into Literacy

A closer look into our literacy initiative for school age children in our programs.

At both at our Portola and Excelsior sites, we practice a robust multi generational and progressive approach to promoting and supporting the development of language and literacy beginning in infancy through childhood and adolescence, as well as into parenthood/adulthood.

Don’t just take our word- take a look. Check out this video of our pre-k participants engaging in “Reading Circle” time. Enjoy!

Our Reading Buddies program focuses on mentorship and literacy by pairing 2nd graders from the San Francisco school with our pre-k participants and giving them opportunities to read and be read to.

Literacy is at the core of everything we do at Family Connections. With this initiative in place we will develop strong readers, writers and learners in the communities we serve.
