“When partnerships are linked to schools’ goals for student success, family and community involvement can measurably affect student learning.”
Our Mission and Vision
LINC’s mission is to engage families and community members to support young readers in high need neighborhoods. LINC harnesses the power that exists in every community to make literacy a value and right of all children. Our children’s educational success is the path out of poverty and the key to achievement.
LINC measures the efficacy of its programs using evidence-based research. In 2012, LINC hired Phillips Wyatt Knowlton, a measurement and management resource firm to evaluate its programs and provide a baseline for charting impact. In 2013-14, LINC observed and measured the following among its cohorts of teachers and families.
“Collectively, this evidence demonstrates LINC’s positive progress with parents and educators relative to children’s early literacy skill and the associated context of a reading-rich culture…Data indicates the program is improving vulnerable children’s lives in important ways.”
