MISSION STATEMENT

 

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.
