Very Involved 
Parents (VIPS)

Parents are a powerful force. They are the backbone of the LINC model. Parents have the ability to shape and influence their children's future. LINC's Very Involved Parent Workshops equip our parents who wish to take a greater role in shaping the future of their communities.


VIP Workshops

In just 3 sessions, you will learn how to:

1: Make your home a literacy-rich environment

2: Get more involved in your child's academic success

3: Host reading programs with LINC

4: Promote early literacy in your community

Keep an eye out for future VIP Workshop dates!

With every graduating class of VIPs, LINC looks for new ways to honor our VIPs for their dedication and commitment to our mission. In 2022, we launched a video interview series - VIP Voices - in which we highlight the experiences of seven influential literacy advocates.
