The Family Literacy Program
Silvana Vasconcelos has recently began a Family Literacy Program at the Queens Library located in Long Island City, Queens. Through her constant dedication, She has helped many immigrant families find better lives here in New York City. She has continuously taught them everything from goal orientation to literacy to better parenting - she has been absolutely involved in bringing all that she can to this community.
I interviewed with her yesterday to become a volunteer with her program and came to learn how much help they really need over there. With regards to work and school - I can only volunteer for a few hours a week. I hope people take interest in her cause in helping these families better integrate in to our city and our able to help her for at the least a few hours a week.

Peace and Blessings.
