Communities across the state are coming together in new and innovative ways to better engage with and support children and their families during the first eight years of life to ensure all of Georgia’s children become proficient readers by the end of third grade. Public and private partners are developing valuable resources and implementing systems changes to help parents, school districts, and state and local leaders in their efforts to get Georgia reading.

Their stories are inspiring. Your stories are inspiring.

We want to lift these stories up so that more people are aware of what’s possible and what’s available to help them advance their own local efforts. We want to celebrate the work underway in your community—the ways you’re engaging families in the delivery of Language Nutrition to infants and children; ensuring true access to educational and supportive services for all families; promoting learning climates that enable children to feel safe and supported in early learning centers and schools; and providing today and tomorrow’s teachers with the skills and knowledge they need to effectively support all children on the path to language and literacy.

Help us spread the word about the work you are doing by submitting your story today.
