WHO WE ARE

An adult literacy program

Literacy Partners is an adult literacy program for parents and caregivers.  We believe that every parent and caregiver has skills and knowledge they need to develop success for themselves and a better future for their children.

La Fuerza de Familias Latinas is a national campaign and education program inspired by Univision popular telenovela “La Fuerza de Creer 2” which was seen by more than 1.4 million people in 2019.  Our workshops and digital resources are designed to support parents and caregivers to promote their children’s early learning, social emotional growth and school readiness.

Our program model is aligned with early learning educational standards used by many states and was found to be “uniquely successful” by external evaluators from New York University. Our approach is to engage Spanish-speaking families “in language and in culture” with stories they can relate to, a community they can grow with, and practical tools they can use at home with their children.

OUR APPROACH

Theory of Change

We believe parents already have what they need at home, in-culture, and in-language to promote their children’s early learning, social emotional growth, and school readiness.  We begin with the power of story and provide the community and the context for parents and caregivers to develop their existing capacity.   

Bring La Fuerza to your community

We meet families where they are – in their home language and culture, at home or in the community – while navigating real-world issues.
