Our Capabilities

NCFL offers professional development and consulting services spanning the content areas of two-generation programming, family literacy, adult education, early childhood, elementary education, and ESL.

In addition to NCFL's work with Aprendiendo Juntos Council and libraries, two recent examples of NCFL collaborations include:

  • NCFL's newest collaborative, Say & Play with Words, is a two-year, multi-language initiative supported by the PNC,Skillman and Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Foundations to reach 150 Detroit parents and 413 young children through direct intervention (family service learning) and close to 2,250 parents (with 6,500 children) through additional outreach.
  • NCFL's partnership with Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) to help early childhood teachers in Louisville, Ky., utilize proven literacy strategies that build parent capacity to engage in joint learning with their children and build critical early literacy skills.

Community and Coalition Building — In 2015, NCFL merged with longtime partners Literacy Powerline, a service provider to local literacy coalitions over many years. One recent example is Flint, MI, where we are currently focusing the literacy coalition's work around family literacy.
