The First Annual Run for Literacy is an effort to raise awareness about the family literacy needs in the CNY Community as well as to connect to the Newcomers to Syracuse and meet with literacy workers, volunteers, supporters, and other stakeholders. All proceedings go toward family literacy programs within our community. The program is organized by support and volunteers from the North Side Learning Center, a family literacy center serving the newcomers on the north side of Syracuse since 2009.
ABOUT NORTH SIDE LEARNING CENTER
The North Side Learning Center (NSLC) was founded to aid in adult and youth literacy development, and to be instrumental in teaching self-sufficiency and self-actualization to newcomers in our community. Students come from a multitude of countries around the world. Beyond the core of teaching English to adults and providing academic support to their children, additional programs are offered as resources allow.
These have included sewing classes, digital and financial literacy, soccer, photography, and college prep to name a few. Volunteers from Syracuse University, Le Moyne College, and the general community allow NSLC to provide these enhanced classes and to provide individualized, constructive teaching. Services are provided to over 150 students annually – from ages four to eighty-four. What makes the North Side Learning Center unique – and successful – is its approach: start with where people are; respect their experiences and abilities; and teach what they want and need to learn .
