Commitment to Literacy

Literacy Training: California

Thanks to the generous support of the Brethren Community Foundation, Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia facilitated a week-long multisensory literacy training and implementation seminar in January 2019 for four Boys & Girls Club organizations in California, launching the Fellowship Literacy Initiative Prototype (FLIP) program. The training was hosted by our partners at the Prentice School in Tustin, California and included 20 attendees from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Fullerton, Central Orange Coast and Sonoma Valley as well as the Youth & Family Club of Pomona County.

Traveling Literacy Symposium: Africa 2019

Under our Power of Leadership initiative, the Brethren Community Foundation with fellow organization Global Partners for Development, helped fund the Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia bring their youth of the year on a journey to Africa for their Traveling Literacy Symposium. This experience was one of international global awareness; with members visiting the young women who have benefited from receiving scholarships and attending community meetings.
