OUR FAMILY LITERACY MODEL
Grace Place has designed a comprehensive scaffold of programs to serve the entire family by including early childhood education, youth education, adult education, P.A.C.T. (parent and child together) time and interactive family literacy activities. By engaging both the parent and child, our programs provide a comprehensive model to create an educational environment beyond the classroom, into the home.
GRACE PLACE FAMILY LITERACY MODEL®
The mission of Bright Beginnings is to cultivate confident, capable and literate parents prepared to guide their child through the crucial years of early development and successfully prepare them to transition to formal schooling at a level with their peers.
COLLEGE AND CAREER ACCESS PROGRAM
The mission of the LEAD (Leaders Empowered to Achieve Dreams) is to provide high school students with targeted academic assistance, life and leadership skills, college and career readiness, and volunteer/work-based learning opportunities, so that students have the necessary tools for success beyond high school.
