The Syracuse Literacy Zones are Growing!
The Syracuse City School District has received a third grant to establish a Literacy Zone on the south side of Syracuse! We are now the only organization in New York State to have been awarded three Literacy Zones. Our newest Family Welcome Center is located in the Adult Education wing at Dr. King Elementary School. We continue to work hard to serve adults and their families. As is the case at both the North and West Family Welcome centers, the South Literacy Zone has two case managers housed at the South Family Welcome Center to assist students in pursuit of their education, career and family goals. We currently offer GED classes at the South Family Welcome Center and at Beauchamp Branch Library. Stay tuned as we will soon be offering other classes as well.
