The mission of U2Can is to provide guidance, support and training needed to empower parents to be their child’s first teachers of reading. U2Can encourages primary caregivers to be actively involved in their child’s education and to foster their positive beliefs in academic successful outcomes. With interventions in place for parents of early childhood learners, it is more likely that these youngsters will be independent, proficient readers by the end of third grade and continue to meet success throughout school. U2Can sets the goal of aiding parents in helping their children be life-long learners.
A parent is a child’s “first teacher.” U2Can aims to empower parents, grandparents and guardians with the knowledge and tools necessary to help their children successfully learn academic skills in the home in conjunction with school-based learning.
