What We Do
LINC works throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island to surround children with literacy-rich environments. We disrupt intergenerational illiteracy by training parents to help their children embrace reading. Parents become literacy ambassadors within their communities, engaged with resources that already exist in their neighborhoods. The entire community contributes to the goal of raising readers, creating a culture of literacy at the neighborhood level. We generate lasting change.
