READ Global establishes community library and resource centers (READ Centers) in rural villages in Bhutan, India and Nepal, where a majority of women are illiterate, and most families live below the poverty line.  READ Centers provide a powerful platform to empower women - they are often the only safe space in a community for women to gather, learn and advocate.  Centers offer a wide variety of programs and trainings, including literacy, livelihoods skills development, computer training and health programs.  You can learn more at http://www.readglobal.org

6 Week Baby Sign Language Playgroup Zoom

10/24/14
11:00am-12:00pm

This six-week playgroup is a fun opportunity for you to build your signing vocabulary with themes like mealtime, animals, colors, family, bedtime, and more.  Two different playgroup series are offered for an increased opportunity to practice and build your signing vocabulary.  One is called Playgroup Zoom and the other is called Playgroup Boom.  No need to take them in order; you can start with either Zoom or Boom.  Both Playgroup Boom and Playgroup Zoom include the essential basic starter signs and vary in the more advanced vocabulary.  When babies are around 13 to 14 months old and expressing many signs, parents often enroll in the alternate series as a refresher course to grow their vocabulary.

Playgroup Series Six 60 minute sessions  |  4 to 18 months

Fridays,  Oct. 24 - Dec. 12 11:00 - 12:00, Skip 10/31 & 11/28.
