The CNMI Motheread/Fatheread Family Literacy Program held a completion ceremony for 31 participants at the Center of Living Independently last Aug. 5.
The 31 participants who took part in the adult course facilitated by parent-trainer Celina Foreman was the program’s largest class of 2019 to date.
Since June 17, Motheread/Fatheread has conducted fun, interactive activities combined with storytelling every Monday.
Motheread/Fatheread is a nationally acclaimed community-based program administered by the Northern Marianas Humanities Council. Parents and children learn to use the power of children’s literature to improve their own reading skills, to explore challenging family issues, and to foster empowerment in their daily lives.
The Motheread/Fatheread Program is free for all parents and guardians.
If you love reading and story-telling and want to take part in the next free adult courses with Motheread/Fatheread, visit CNMI Motheread/Fatheread on Facebook or at the Joeten-Kiyu Public Library or call program coordinators Beth Demapan and Cassandra Deleon Guerrero at 235-7319/783-7678/285-2279 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
