NCLF: Toyota Family Learning Initiative

Through the Toyota Family Learning initiative, the National Center for Family Literacy will award three-year grants to implement services that engage families in learning together, mentoring other families in learning together, and family service learning projects. Priority will be given to projects that adapt existing family engagement in education programs to include the implementation of family mentoring and service learning components, including interactive literacy activities between parents and children, training for parents to be the primary teacher for their children and full partners in the education of their children, families mentoring other families to learn together and participate, and family service learning through projects and the sharing of those projects, activities, and experiences on the Toyota Family Learning community website. Maximum award: $175,000, as well as a wide range of NCFL training and communications support. Eligibility: schools (traditional public and charter), community-based organizations, libraries, and other organizations that provide family-focused educational services for parents, grandparents, and/or legal guardians and their children ranging in age from 4 to 18 and serve a high percentage of minority populations and/or low-income families in two or three separate sites. Deadline: June 24, 2013.
