Development of Literacy Skills

Supporting students means supporting their families as they navigate often complex and inequitable education systems. To support families, CAFE provides trainings to develop families’ understanding of education systems, enhance their experiences building relationships with school communities, and practice learning strategies to support their students’ academic learning.

Example: In Queen Anne’s County, MD, CAFE partners with NCFL with a two-generation program. We support caregivers as they practice literacy skills (including in their GED work) while developing and promoting student literacy skills.
