Family Engagement

The Big Lift invests in Raising A Reader Plus, a national, award-winning, evidence-based early literacy and family engagement program. Additionally, The Big Lift communities facilitate Family Parent Cafés as a strategy to promote leadership skills while strengthening family-school partnerships. These efforts help families develop, practice, and sustain home literacy routines in ways that build on family strengths, culture, and language.

Our focus on family engagement starts with Raising a Reader because it supports brain development and the family bonding that leads to the early literacy skills for a child’s success!
