Tailored for families with children ages 4-12, the program provides parents the choice of the two training programs while the children are taught by Temple ISD instructors.

The program combines individual training and workforce preparation instruction that prepares parents to attain or improve employment while promoting family learning. The program is free and classes are co-taught by AEL instructors who are available to help those who need clarification and/or have language barriers.

As parents benefit from participating in the Family Literacy Program, the children and the entire family also benefit.

Enroll online at the AEL website.
