Faith leaders, are you passionate about young children succeeding in Oakland?
The Kenneth Rainin Foundation, in collaboration with Literacy Lab, would like to partner with places of worship, any denomination serving in Oakland, to engage their communities in building literacy skills for young children. This opportunity includes Literacy Lab services to help places of worship:
Host early childhood literacy sessions to bolster the knowledge and experience of parents and caregivers as their child's first teacher. These events will include parent discussions, activities, games and fun giveaways.
Provide free books for preschool children and their families to read together.
Offer ongoing access to information, tips and tools to help children from birth to five years gain the language and literacy skills they need to be ready for kindergarten and to succeed in life.
Learn more at this information session.
Although anyone is welcome, we recommend that someone from your pastoral leadership and/or children’s ministry attend one of these sessions. Food will be provided. Space is limited; please RSVP.
Evergreen Missionary Baptist is located at the corner of MacArthur Boulevard and Webster Street. Parking is available behind the church. Access parking from Webster Street.
