Diversity Journal Recognizes NCFL Program

Introduced in Head Start centers in three U.S. cities, NCFL’s La Lectura En Familia (Families Reading Together) has shown great promise in improving Hispanic parents’ ability to support their child’s language and literacy development.

Results from the project, which was funded by Pitney Bowes Literacy and Education Fund, were published in the May/June issue of Profiles in Diversity Journal, a national publication that is read by more than 1 million corporate, diversity, education and philanthropic leaders.

Children participating in the pilot program showed significant gains in reading, and parents reported increases in reading to their children and visiting the library with their family.
