SMART Family Literacy is dedicated to education for young children and their families through innovative hands-on activities in science, math, art, reading, and technology. Prioritizing goals in early childhood literacy, bilingual literacy, and health literacy, SMART reads aloud with community groups, builds vegetable gardens, and gives children's books. Literacy creates access to opportunities and is the most powerful tool in the struggle towards self-sufficiency.
We believe the best weapon and best defense against poverty is literacy.
Literacy is much more than reading.
Literacy opens doors and provides access to the community. Illiteracy is isolating and wasteful.
A literate workforce is essential to a strong economy.
A literate citizenry capable of making informed decisions is the foundation of a democracy.
Literacy connects people to resources and allows them to share their gifts with others.
No matter how big the data, we know we must see the faces, one reader at a time, one family at a time.
We provide nutrition and vegetable literacy to fight childhood obesity and diabetes.
Our approach integrates the disciplines of science, math, art, reading, and technology,
because this helps us understand an integrated world.
For children of all ages, we try to provide a fun approach to the serious issue of illiteracy.
