Over 240 parents and family members joined their children on June 13 for the Youth Policy Institute's 2015 Family Literacy Awards Ceremony. This year's celebration took place at Vaughn International Studies Academy High School in Pacoima.
The YPI Family Literacy Program provides resources and workshops to help parents engage as their children attend school. Active at 31 of our school sites, Family Literacy is on target to facilitate over 1,000 parent workshops this year alone. Over 5,000 parents participate and new attendees join us every year.
Our annual awards ceremony recognizes brave families who are overcoming language barriers and rudimentary formal education to give their children the best opportunities possible.
Congratulations to our 2015 awardees!
