Parents are a powerful force. They are the backbone of the LINC model. Parents have the ability to shape and influence their children’s future. LINC’s Very Involved Parent Academy celebrates our parents who wish to take a greater role in shaping the future of their communities.

Over the course of multiple sessions participants are trained as reading advocates. Parents learn ways to support early literacy and techniques for community organizing. Upon graduation, parents partner with local organizations, landlords and businesses to establish their own neighborhood reading programs.
