Adult Literacy

 “Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”
- Frederick Douglass
The KinDoo Adult Literacy program focuses on adults within the community. Research has shown that changes in the attitudes and behaviors of parents will affect changes in their children.
Based on that research, the goals of the Adult Literacy Program offered at Kin Doo Family Center include the following:
  • To provide English language instruction and to enhance the educational level of the parents.
  • To help parents gain the skills, knowledge and motivation needed to become employed; pursue further education; or training.
  • To encourage parents to work on reading and writing independently, and to become less dependent upon their children.
  • To initiate programs that address parent needs and interests, ie:preparation for GED, CNA, etc.
