On Thursday, Feb. 20, both men and women are invited to join Women United in the mission of “Growing Great Kids”. Men are welcome, because our kids need you too!
This event will feature Trusted Messenger Training through the nationally-recognized program “Talking is Teaching”; Talk, Read, Sing. As a Trusted Messenger, you will have a better understanding of brain development on future learning, and the information and tools needed to help make a difference in literacy.
Women United of Livingston County believes there is a moral and economic imperative to better prepare our children to succeed in school, career, and in life!
Its first focus, to improve literacy in Livingston County, was made by initiating a partnership with Livingston Educational Service Agency and their "Talking is Teaching" county-wide campaign, to measurably improve 3rd grade reading over the next 5 years.
On February 20th, guests will be trained, engage in a hands-on volunteer activity, network, and have fun! All proceeds from this event will be invested in children’s literacy right here in Livingston County.
Join us! Please invite your parents, book clubs, friends and business associates to become a Trusted Messenger.
RSVP by Friday, February 14th. Register online at https://www.lcunitedway.org/women-united/, call us at 810-494-3000 or find the link on our Facebook page @lcunitedway.
The event will be at Citizens Insurance, 808 N. Highlander Way, Howell.
