Family Literacy Program

The Danbury WERACE Family Literacy Program provides young mothers and fathers ages 17 - 21 access to the training and support they need to create a literate home environment, and enhance the academic achievement of themselves and their children. It is designed to integrate early childhood education and education for parents of young children into a project that builds on existing community resources. Family Literacy Programs provide comprehensive family centered education to improve children’s academic success and increase parents’ economic opportunities. It is required that all participants be fluent in English.
