Barbara Bush Family Literacy Program is a Success

girls readingIn September, NICA began a nine month partnership with the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy to teach English.  This grant is quite prestigious and NICA is proud to be working with the Barbara Bush Foundation.

The literacy program provides English as a Second Language, reading and writing instruction, computer training, and parenting skills. The classes run Tuesday through Friday from 9:30-12:00.

The response we have received from the families in the community has been exciting and heartwarming.  Both children and parents have demonstrated an eagerness to learn and improve their English skills.

Before classes began, we pre-tested the parents and children.  In just a few short weeks, we have already seen dramatic improvements. NICA would like to extend a thank you to the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy for funding and helping us develop this program.  We would also like to thank the many volunteers who come to help teach and provide child care each day.  They are truly the key to the students’ success.
