Family Literacy Initiative Training Institute

(Grades K-college) EMU Student Center 320; July 23, 2015;
9 a.m.–4 p.m. ($75 - includes breakfast and lunch).
6 SCECH’s available.

Since 2006, the EMWP Family Literacy Initiative (FLI) has been helping parents and families understand how they can support their children and teens as writers. Starting with only three workshop offerings in 2006, we now offer twelve different kinds of workshops for students in grades K-12, their parents/caregivers, and their families. This school year has been our busiest in terms of workshop requests. In fact, we have presented more than 25 workshops for schools and after-school programs in Southeastern Michigan since November 2014.

If you are interested in learning more about the EMWP Family Literacy Initiative, earning some extra income as a presenter, and/or, perhaps, introducing more family literacy outreach at your school, please join us for the Family Literacy Initiative Training Institute on Thursday, July 23. We will be meeting on the campus of EMU for a day-long institute focusing on what the EMWP Family Literacy Initiative does, how we have done it, and what we’ve learned over the past nine years.

The cost to attend the FLI Training Institute is $75 and includes a light breakfast and lunch. To register, please go to If you have any questions, please contact Kim Pavlock, EMWP Youth and Family Literacy Programs Director, at
