NCFL seeks adult learners to speak at the Families Learning Conference
National Center for Families: 5.11.2017
The National Center for Families Learning is seeking student speakers for the Families Learning Conference to be held in Tucson, Arizona, October 9 – 11, 2017.
Eligible speakers are fluent in English and must have
> attended a family literacy or family learning program that has a 2-generational learning component and completed at least one or two years in the program and
> completed a minimum of 3 speaking engagements in their class/school, in front of local groups and/or local or state conferences with at least one of these groups having 50 – 100 attendees.
We are particularly interested in students who have a story to tell about how attending a family literacy/family learning program has changed their lives, who developed strategies for supporting their children’s academic development, have begun to accomplish some of their employment or vocational goals, and/or have developed supportive strategies to include their extended family. We would love to hear how through family literacy/family learning services, adult learners have found their way to economic and family success.
The deadline to submit is Thursday, June 1, 2017
