YLE Session Recap: United Christian Faith Ministries

Councilwoman Erika L. Green is hosting the annual IWE Literary Festival scheduled June 8, 2019 at Southern University A&M, beBATONROUGE is a proud partner of it. While we await the arrival of June 8th, there are smaller events leading up to the culminating festival called YLE (Youth Literacy Engagement) Sessions. The purpose of these events is to attract families, caregivers, retired teachers, and youth to be involved in this initiative and gain useful literacy information. Each session will be held at churches and schools in the community, and will create a working space to encourage literacy, including youth literacy activities, parent focus groups, literary competition, free book distribution, and speakers.

Here’s a quick recap from their YLE session this past weekend:

We had a Wonderful time at the YLE session, Nequoia Elsey presented a session of Cradle to K “Parenting Pillars”, Amanda Taylor connected music with literacy. Jasmine Walker incorporated sign language and reading to our youth and Juanita Johnson shared stories of local inventors! Our attendees won different prices and we sent them home with new books to read at home. We want to thank our volunteers, City Year and Diamond Stars 864 ; and invite you to join our next session on May 20th at Forest Heights Academy of excellence.
