The Salem Family Literacy Program is a federal program conceived to break the cycle of poverty by providing education for the family unit. Parents have the opportunity to improve their education status, gain parenting skills, learn English and prepare their children for success in school. Meanwhile, in the classroom children are given the chance to increase pre-literacy skills, such as vocabulary building, verbal expression and social skills.
Volunteer opportunities include assisting children in the classroom or tutoring parents. Opportunities are available during the daytime and in the evenings. (bike, car, bus)
