The National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) recognizes the opportunities literacy and learning organizations provide and the challenges that are faced when working to make real and lasting change happen for students, families, and communities.
Our goal this year is to seek innovative ways to expand the National Literacy Directory‘s reach for students, practitioners, programs, and communities while continuing to celebrate and share the effective strategies being employed by Directory organizations.
We also know that in order to help families rise towards academic success and self-sufficiency, we must take time to refresh our minds, idea-share with our colleagues, and learn from the experts in our fields. That’s why the latest opportunity in the Directory’s Innovation Grant series will send a representative from two organizations to our affiliate partner Coalition on Adult Basic Education (COABE)’s annual conference at Sheraton Grand Phoenix in Phoenix, Arizona, on March 25-28, 2018. This grant will include registration costs and a $1,000 travel stipend.
The deadline to apply is Tuesday, February 13, 2018, at 11:59:59 PM EST. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, February 20, 2018.
