EVEN START FAMILY LITERACY
Even Start programs
provide intensive family literacy services
involving parents and children in an effort to
help parents become full partners in the
education of their children. An integrated
program must include adult education, early
childhood education, parenting education and
interactive literacy activities for parents and
children together. Even Start also requires that
some services be provided to participants
through home-based programs.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
participating in Even Start must have a child
under the age of 8 and have a parent lacking a
high school diploma and/or basic reading skills
or need English as a Second Language training.
