We are working with organizations that work with families with young children to make sure the messages about the importance of home language development reach families!
Open Arms Home Visiting
This Spring, OpenArms will provide home visits for families enrolled in their program that will be dedicated to support on home language acquisition! They will also have community meetings and an open house to share information with families on home language development.
Shout-out to Graham Hill Elementary for their work on the Home Language Campaign!
Graham Hill, an elementary school in Seattle, has been working hard to partner with families to build a school that values cultural and linguistic diversity and how the school can support children with primary language and positive identity development. They hosted an event this past winter which was a great example of a school community partnership around the Home Language Campaign. See photos from their event below.
