“Our task is to help children communicate with the world using all their potential, strengths and languages, and to overcome any obstacle presented by our culture.” Loris Malaguzzi
Join us for the 10th Family Literacy Conference for Professionals! Participants partake in inter-professional perspectives, reflective dialogue, and collaborative inquiry as we consider all facets of literacy in relation to overall well-being, children’s rights, and in building safe, inclusive, and vibrant communities and learning environments.
This year, the Family Literacy Conference is going virtual! Through four special evening presentations, we will explore the power of story and storytelling in our work with children, youth, and families. How do stories shape us, connect us, challenge us, inspire us? And how can we engage with story as a tool to lift up and empower young voices?
To wrap up this year’s Family Literacy Conference, we invite you to a special Community Gathering. Whether you attended one, none, or all of the previous offerings, this is an opportunity to connect in shared joy and reflection as we consider what we heard, felt, and experienced listening to Richard, Summer, David, and Ainara, and what the lasting impact of their words will be on our work with children.
Please come prepared to share your thoughts and discuss with fellow professionals how we can continue to engage with story as a way to lift up children’s voices.
The Family Centered Service System team will also be sharing the role story plays in their work as Community Connectors.
