The NewAlliance Foundation provides financial support to charitable organizations operating in its service area that address diverse community needs, including youth & education. In addition, a segment of their grant making is targeted toward programs that empower people through the development of literacy skills.
Through this mutual interest in improving educational outcomes and literacy, we are very pleased to let you know the NewAlliance Foundation has awarded CfAL with a $7,500 grant. This grant will be used to help sustain our Digital Literacy for Early Learners, “A Primer for Parents” program (DLEL).
The DLEL program has been designed to increase disadvantaged parents’ awareness of the benefit of early learning, and help them engage in educating their children, age birth to 5, so their children can start kindergarten with the critical skills they’ll need to learn and succeed in school.
The program, through a 4-workshop series, combines platform instruction, along with detailed instructions and discussion about the use of Libraries and engaging and important early learner educational websites targeted for each specific age level, from birth to 5.
We thank the NewAlliance Foundation’s Board of Directors and staff for this grant award and supporting the DLEL program, as we mutually work to improve public school children’s education.
