LITERACY INITIATIVES

Following the creation of this initiative, TCIONC will design and implement a coordinated outreach campaign to promote literacy training opportunities in select underserved communities throughout Wake County, North Carolina. TCIONC will begin by seeking out community leaders (e.g., clergy, block captains, neighborhood association members) in those selected areas who are willing to help promote the Literacy Initiative and where feasible, offer a location (e.g., a church or recreation center) where literacy training may be delivered. As part of the outreach phase,TCIONC will contact City Council members, ward leaders and party committee persons whose jurisdictions coincide with the communities where TCIONC operates. This component of the initiative will give TCIONC an opportunity to engage directly with local elected officials as they work to amplify the reach and impact of the Literacy Initiative.
